I will go ahead with WebKit-gtk+

I was actually trying to implement a basic offline blog editor, such
that we can use LibreOffice (editor) to compose blogs and then publish
them to blogger/wordpress etc. I found a project blogtk which does
something similar but uses webkitgtk. I believe it will be a nice
extension for LibreOffice though. Google told me about some SunPublish
plugin but I couldn't find an easy way to install it and some user
feedback told that it was not working with recent versions.

Thanks for all your help.
