Yes.  In general it is highly recommended to download wxPython
and the associated demo app.  The demo app shows every single
widget so you get an idea of what is available, what they look
like and you can examine the demo code to see how they are used.

Unlikely.  It is a simple HTML viewer and doesn't support stylesheets
amongst other things.  (It does support adding your own tags,
widgets and virtual filesystems though).  More details are at
http://www.lpthe.jussieu.fr/~zeitlin/wxWindows/docs/wxwin_wxhtml.html
(The "Tags supported by wxHTML 75% of the way down will be useful
 information for you)

However the good news is you have two alternatives.  One is that
on Windows you can use the IE HTML display widget directly.  See
the demo.

If you need to be cross platform then wxMozilla is worth looking at
(which is apparently active despite appearing dormant).  Start at
