I appreciate the response...

But, when I try something like this...

from mod_python import apache

def handler(req):
    req.content_type = "text/plain"
    req.write("Hello World!")
    return apache.OK

it simply prints the code to the browser when I go to the page.

How do I get the interpreter working from within the browser.
Thanks in advance.
