Thanks. But what I'm not seeing is any example of how to make this allowed to
generate the html at run time. I think I want to embed my python code into an
html file. Beautiful soup seems to allow me to create a preprocessor which I
could use through a Makefile to generate the html. I have the feeling I'm
missing something. Or do I use this in conjunction with wsgi?
