Could somebody tell me what's the difference between a web document and a shortcut to a website? When you right-click on web links in the start menu to check on properties, you can notice both. When you open the IE, the favorites are all web documents. What's the difference?

Thank you

Web files contain the source html code on your computer. Allows you to edit it.

Shortcuts to websites just link you to the website. The shortcut is basically like you entering the web address into an internet browser.

Can you tell why then, some programs will install web documents in the start menu, and others install shortcuts? Some of these shortcuts don't even have an icon, why?
