Does Jython support Tkinter? OK, maybe that question as worded is
nonsense, let me re-phrase it: If I code a program in Python and put a
GUI front end on it with Tkinter, how hard would it be to do the same
program in Jython? Or is there a better solution for Jython GUI's?

    By the way, as I am new to Python and learning it, but I am
interested in Jython for embedding (relatively simple) applets into
webpages, how different is Jython from Python? How steep will the
learning curve be for Jython, after learning a reasonable amount of

    How hard is it to translate Python programs into Jython?

    How good is Jython? Can I write Jython programs, and then turn them
into Java applets that easily embed into web pages? (I have a small but
working knowledge of embedding Java applets in web pages, despite my
overwhelming newbie status in all things coding related ;-)))

    Please forgive my newbieness and all replies will be deeply
