Some things that spring to mind:
An entire web development and content management platform written in
and customisable with Python.
* 'cgi' module:

Server-side utilities, framework and templating tools for Python
* PSP (Python server pages)
ASP equivalent for Python

Cameron Laird has an excellent and more complete collection of alternatives
Hope that helps,
