Is this really what you want to do?  I can't see why you need python
to *open* the web browser.  Why not write the html to a file and open
that file in an already running browser.  Maybe bookmark it, as in a
bookmark to

  file:///home.yourname/yourfile.html
 
You can certainly write html in python

  fh = file('yourfile.html', 'w')
  fh.write('<html>\n')
  fh.write('Hello!\n')
  fh.write('</html>\n')

It would help if you said more specifically why you need to do what
you ask.
