Is it possible to put a background image in a Tkinter Text widget?

I have googled and searched but cant seam to find any solution to this?

Unfortunately, text widgets do not support background images.

You *might* be able to use one of the existing Tk html widgets, using the Python Megawidgets framework, but ... that would probably be quite a bit of work.

Okay thanks I will have a look at that.. would it be better/easier for me to do this in wxpython?
Because then I could consider re-writing my GUI completely

I am clueless regarding wxpython, however, if it has widgets that
support your needs, it would most likely be both easier and less work.
