MS did not just put an HTML API in the OS. Tbey licensed an application code, modified the code application, sold the application as part of a plus pack, bundled the application with the OS, gave it away for free (which really screwed the people they licensed it from. Luckily they had a minimum payment, which MS really did not want to pay), then said it's part of the os, and is not an application. Even then, not enough people were using it, so they paid people to use the free software (eg AOL).
