*sigh*, sorry for the snarky answer..  but seriously ten minutes on
google should answer all your questions.

Meantime, for csv parsing you can use the csv module
(http://docs.python.org/lib/module-csv.html);  for generating HTML I
recommend ElementTree (http://effbot.org/zone/element-index.htm) but
there are lots of other packages that will do this too;  as for windows
server and python, I know nothing..;  python comes with a web server
(http://docs.python.org/lib/module-SimpleHTTPServer.html) but you'd
probably want to use one of the aproximately dozen other python
packages that have their own web server engine..  Zope, twisted, ...
there are lots of them- search this news group, IIRC they've been
mentioned recently.

Google is your friend,


Peace,
