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.
