Navigating over a set of tabs

How can I develop a Web page that shows a list of tabbed pages, so that if a user clicks on a particular tab, the Web page will take the user to the page associated with that tab (much like what a Windows tab control would do)?
A Windows tab control doesn't take you to a different form, which would be the analogy to taking you to another page in the Web world. You can use the Microsoft Internet Explorer WebControls, which come with a controls to do tab-navigation over a set of tabs. Each tab is a panel-like control where you place the UI controls. All panels are hidden except for the one associated with the currently selected tab.

The current download location is, but MS has changed the distribution to a source form.

I've uploaded the original MSI installer to and for your convenience.
