There are 3 pairs of triple-quotes.  But one pair is nested inside the 
other, so the interpreter will not handle it the way you apparently 
want.  If you have to use quotes inside quotes, you must either use a 
different kind, or escape them.  Perhaps you wanted something like:

      counter = """
               print '''<center>  etc....
                     <td>font ...
               """ % data[0]

But this fragment is unreadable to me, so the syntax error is probably 
the least of your worries.

No clue what that sentence fragment means.

'absorve' isn't an English word, and neither 'absorb' nor 'observe' make 
any sense.

Perhaps if you posted a complete program, and identified it by name, and 
specified the complete environment it runs in, and used English to 
describe what should be appended to what, we'd be able to help.  As it 
is, you've got mixed clues from which that it's both Python 2 and 3, 
running Linux or equivalent, and probably runs on a server.

Using symbol names that make sense would also help.  'htmlpage' is 
apparently a str representing a filename on disk.  'counter' is not an 
integer, but a long string of html.   'data' is apparently a tuple or 
list, and the zeroth element is an int. ??
