I should have been more specific. The report needs to be presentable to 
my users and needs to have rich text type properties (multiple colors, 
tables, etc) Therefore, I would like to use html if possible.

I didn't know if there was already a report writing type of utility 
already built using python, so I won't have to reinvent the wheel.

Oh. The one other thing I forgot to mention is that the data needs to be 
already updated every 10 minutes or so automatically.
