Umm. This has nothing to do with Python... but hey :-)
Unless your CGI script is set to content-type: text/plain,
you're supposed to print valid HTML.
You'll have more success if you print the following:
print "<html><body>" # begin HTML
print "<pre>" # HTML 'preformatted' block
print "</pre>" # end 'preformatted block'
print "</body></html>" # end HTML
