I am a greenhorn in wxPython, so please don't bet on what I state here,
but to my current knowledge wxPython doesn't come with a widget capable
of what Tkinter text box is capable of. But wxPython comes e.g. with a
widget displaying any HTML content, so if you need only to display and
not edit things it is a perfect one to use if you need to mix text with
images and control elements.
