These are generally 2 different things:  either you're writing a 
local GUI rich-client (in which case, use the GuiProgramming wiki 
link Mike sent), or you're doing web development targeting 
browsers in which case you should investigate the myriad web 
programming frameworks for Python (Django, Turbogears, CheryPy, 
web.py, webstack, etc).

There's a third "type" of application that I abhor, usually 
developed in Flash/Silverblight/JavaFX that runs within a 
web-browser, but allows for richer interactions/rendering than 
your average web-page.  However, I don't know of any python 
tie-ins for any of these environments.

There's also a blurred line if you embed a web-browser in a local 
GUI application.
