I would look into binding extensions of the GtkMozEmbed widget. The
current GtkMozEmbed API does not expose the Gecko engine's html editing
features. Alternatively I'd look at binding the GtkHTML3 library. It's
used as the html editor in the evolution email client. I'm not sure if
WebKit/Gtk has html editing features, it might be worth looking into.

As others have said, it's not easy however.
