If I assume by that you mean view it as you would in a browser, then no. Rainmeter can get and parse the underlying HTML code looking for strings, but is not a web browser.

No, Rainmeter does not understand nor care one bit about HTML code, and if you access a site and the site has:

<HTML>
<BODY>
<p>hello world</p>
</BODY>
</HTML>

Rainmeter just sees the raw HTML code, just like that. It has no idea that <p> means "paragraph", and doesn't care.

I hope I am being clear?

I think a Rainmeter plugin that for instance has the webkit library built into it so it could display pages or parts of pages in a skin would be a lot of fun indeed, but I don't see one on the horizon.
