The answer is that you can do it either way.
You can have python create JavaScript that creates
a variable (normally an array) that contains the
values and then have a JavaScript function that
builds the table via DOM or you can just create
the entire page using Python (as HTML) on the
server and send it.  All depends on exactly how
the application needs to act and if you are
comfortable with JavaScript client programming.
