Is the data coming from somewhere like a file or db? If so, I'd just
use something simple like this html generator:

http://pypi.python.org/pypi/html

It's a very clever use of context managers to handle element
nesting :)

If the data doesn't change very often, I'd just write a simple script
that parses the data source and builds a html page to server
statically. If it does, it's not much extra to convert that to a WSGI
script that returns the html string rather than creating a static
file.

I use this approach to produce a browseable table from a folder full
of files with fixed-pattern names.

Hope this helps.
