Well, there's a few ways you could approach it.

You could create a cgi program from your script - this is probably the 
solution you're looking for.

You could have the script run periodically and create a static html file 
in the webroot... this would be acceptable, maybe preferable, if the 
output from your script doesn't change frequently.

There's also more advanced ways you can make python code run in a 
web-service.  Cherrypy comes to mind, as well as the myriad python MVC
