To help you clarify your requirements, I offer this first version which
meets your requirements as stated.  What aspect of this do you find
insufficient?  If you can explain that, we can help you with a more
suitable solution, perhaps involving the StructuredText concept...

text = open('afile.txt').read()
htmlFile = open('afile.html', 'w')
print >>htmlFile, '<html><head><title>A file</title></head>'
print >>htmlFile, '<body><pre>%s</pre></body></html>' % text
