Enabling Active Desktop on XP

I'm trying to set a home-made HTML page as my desktop, using XP Home. When I go to Display Properties -> Desktop and then "Customise Desktop" there's no Web tab! Does anyone have ideas?

You have to be connected to the Internet to do this.

Hi Stuart,

I'm on a university LAN connection!

The only thing I can think then of is to convert the page to a .bmp file...:-(

But it appears that you will only get the Web tab up if connected online.
