    Have a look at the Scintilla text editor http://www.scintilla.org/ There is a wrapper for it in wxPython - wxStyledTextCtl. It was not the easiest thing to develop with last time I tried but things have probably moved on.

    I am not aware of a free widget that emulates Word or Dreamweaver. The nearest you can get without creating your own would be to use Scintilla as the editor and wxHtmlwindow to render the output. But only a subset of HTML is supported.
