You can also use Python's cgi module. It's pretty cool, from what I've
read:

http://docs.python.org/lib/module-cgi.html
http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~lab2q/
http://www.python.org/doc/essays/ppt/sd99east/index.htm

Of course, there's also the many Python web frameworks to choose from
too.

There are more ways to implement Python in the browser than just
trying to replace javascript with Python. Admittedly, they may be too
big a hammer for your needs.
