Are you talking about a webapplication here? If yes - and the mentioning of
HTML somehow implies that - you can't do that in python, as client-side
code in browsers is Javascript.

However there are frameworks - TurboGears, Django, Pylons - that make rapid
web-application development easy, with good ajax-support.
