You shouldn't need to run a local server unless you have some kind of
server-side logic that is part of the function of this program.

You will load the main "page" of your application using something like
the IWebFrame::loadHTMLString interface.  The method asks for the HTML
to render (which will include your various relative path includes),
and a "base URL" argument that allows you to set where the effective
"root" of your application lives on the local machine.

Check the WebKit .Net documentation and see where it provides its
mechanism for setting the base URL.  It is internally calling one of
the IWebFrame interface calls, but I am not sure which one.
