Without knowing what kind of interface you're making, I can only shoot
in the dark. From your question, I would think that the FancyText
widget would suffice. Other widgets that would be harder to use would
be the StyledTextCtrl and the HtmlWindow (which I use for About
dialogs).

Check out the wxPython Demo for sample code on each of these widgets
and sizers. Also see the Wiki for tips and tricks on using Sizers.
There's a new SizedControl that's supposed to simplify creating
layouts, although I haven't used it. And there's also XRC too.
