automatic gif formation from list of strings?

I'd like to make 100 gifs for use as web buttons, and they would be
named sequentially from 1900 to 1999.
Seems pretty straightforward:
specify background size and color and then font details (size, color,
alignment), and that's all you need to iterate thru list..
Is this a good use of python somehow, or does anyone know a better
tool (photoshop,fireworks)? The best I can do right now is make
1900-1909 by hand in fireworks, and then since FW uses layers and
objects, find&replace all "190" with "191", resave, replace all "191"
with "192", resave, etc. Not that bad actually (especially since I
can batch open all 100 then and "replace" color, font, etc before
exporting to gifs), but it seems there might be a better way to make
matching button gifs from a list of *nonpatterned* strings.
