Aha, so you tested it yourself?

When running this in Gedit on four lines of tab-separated text the 
output is:

%s</tr>\n" % line

def addcolumn(item,nb_columns):
     if nb_columns != 3:
         return "<td colspan='%s'>%s</td>" % (3 - nb_columns + 1, item)
     return "<td>%s</td>" % item

output = "<table>\n"
for line in file("data.txt"):
     items = line.strip().split("\t")
     columns = ""
     for item in items :
         columns += addcolumn(item,len(items))
     output  += addline(columns)


output += "</table>"
print output
