Have you seen http://labs.qt.nokia.com/2009/03/12/wysiwyg-html-editor/? I'm
not sure if the example there will help with your problems at all. Just a
guess, though - for your item #1 - the blog references using javascript
code from c++ to interact. You could easily write a javascript function
(heck, use jQuery too, if you want) to convert the DOM (or a node tree) to
an HTML string. And the blog post even references viewing html with syntax

Anyway, just a heads-up to some prior work on the subject - you may have
already seen it and know all about it. Just a thought anyway.
