Evolution merely wraps GtkHTML's Bonobo-based HTML editor with additional buttons and menus that make it suitable as an email composer. There's a simple standalone test program in GtkHTML under components/html-editor/test_editor that may serve as a starting point for your needs. I also have a GtkHTML branch called "mbarnes-composer" where I'm attempting to create an identical GtkWidget-based HTML editor that can be extended using GtkUIManager instead of Bonobo. The GtkWidget-based editor is not yet complete, but I do have a working test program under components/editor/gtkhtml-editor-test.
