Webware's a good solution for Python-based programming, but it specifically
uses Python Server Pages (one of several flavors known by that name) to
intersperse Python code and HTML, so not everything is "like ASP".

Which, by the way, is a Good Thing: ASP-style intermixing doesn't go very
well with Python's indentation requirements.

You might also take a look at Albatross (Dave Cole's recently released an
update) and Cheetah, which are both good open-source templating tools
(Albatross being more web-oriented than Cheetah, and rather more than a
templating tool).

There's also quite a lot to be said for good old HTMLgen.
