Coming from Perl

I'm a complete newbie with Python, but have several years experience 
with Perl in a web environment.

A question I have, if someone here is familiar with Perl, does Python 
have something like Perl's 'here document'? I've just searched and read 
some postings on generating HTML but they all seem to refer to various 
template utilities. Is this the only way, or am I missing something? I'm 
used to generating X/HTML by hand, which makes the here document in Perl 
ideal for me. Also, many times a client already existing HTML code that 
I can use in a script.
