Wininet HTTP Post Parameters


I am looking into using the wininet DLL to transmit data (An XML String) to a servlet, the documentation states :

"Data needs to be passed to these URLs through HTTP request.  The XML formed needs to be passed to these URLs as a data stream (String of Characters). The server does not expect an .xml file.  All it needs is the XML as a string passed as a POST Parameter"

I cant find out how you pass a POST Parameter, I can see that you pass the value "POST" in the verb of HttpOpenRequest but where do I place my XML string to pass it to the servlet.

Thanks very much,
