You might like to read "Dive Into Python"
<http://www.diveintopython.org/toc/index.html> which covers XML
But if you just want a website, I would suggest you:
* Learn about how to run a web server like Apache and have it show plain
HTML pages to a user
* Learn how to write a program that generates HTML files
(If you are a new programmer, I recommend this text
<http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/html/> to learn how to program
in Python. Then go back to Dive Into Python.)
* Write a program that generates one HTML file per web page you want your
users to be able to see.
That way, no programs other than the web server get called when users hit
your website, so it will be as fast as it can be.
