Python is indeed quite lightweight when compared to Java. But it has 
it's share of non-obvious features, dark corners, gotchas, and plain 
warts too.

If you think of some server-page PHP-like solution, you won't find much 
usable stuff. There are quite a few Python web development toolkits / 
frameworks, but Django is becoming the de facto standard. Arguably not 
the "best" framework (depending on your definition of "best"), but 
certainly one of the most pythonic and well documented around.
