If you are looking for "Web" charts, with some level of interactivity, look
at Open Flash Charts 2 http://teethgrinder.co.uk/open-flash-chart-2/

You can Use Python on the server side (regardless of the web framework
you choose)
with the PyOFC2 library (I wrote it). http://btbytes.github.com/pyofc2/

Example of using PyOFC2 with Django:

If you need more interactivity/options look at FusionCharts Version 2
(free) V3 ($)
or Adobe Flex charts (many $$).
