Is the tool for you personally (/internally), or intended for public

If it's for public use, consider things from the end-user's perspective.
I'd recommend imitating the interface used by the other major GNOME
(/Gtk) applications, such as Gnumeric, AbiWord, etc. Each 'document' is
open in a seperate window. I would probably try to make an HTML editor
resemble Abiword as closely as I could, so that the end-user who knows
how to use use Abiword (most end-users) wouldn't have too steep a
learning curve when trying their hand at the HTML editor.
