I have a method that has a string param (html).

I use it to construct HtmlDocument and query it. My question is do I need to dispose of HtmlDocument somehow? If yes, how? it does not implement IDisposable.....

I would also like to know the answer to this question. I am parsing a BIG HTML document (~1.5 Mb string send into LoadHtml), and the tree is taking up approximately 250 Mb of memory. After I've done my parsing, I would like to release the HtmlDocument from memory.

Any chance one of the project members can help with this?

One of the Stack Overflow answers suggests setting the doc to null and then doing GC.Collect() - surely there has to be better way then forcing garbage collection....
