Parsing: BeautifulSoup

Rendering: not sure. If worse came to worst, you could
always call out to 'w3m -dump' using system(). How
sophisticated do you want your rendering to be? Other people
on this last may well know of ways to fully render a page,
including graphics and JavaScript and whatever else, using a
scriptable Python object; I do not.
