I think this sounds like a job for Zope, but I couldn't really say for
sure. I've actually written a bunch of systems that match this
profile, and basically all you need is a template and some string
processing. Python's a good choice for that. There definitely are a
bunch of existing relevant frameworks, although I personally couldn't
say which one would be best for you, but with such a simple task, all
you really need to use is regular expressions and string variable
substitution. (Might be more fun to do it in Zope, though, and more
scalable too.)
