You may want to ask this on comp.lang.python instead.  Most of us here
probably haven't worked with PHP.  From what I've heard, PHP is supposed
to be great for web development, and I'm sure that certain web-based tasks
are easier to do with PHP than Python.  Since your programmer uses PHP
already, it might be to your advantage to stick with PHP.

You might want to look at devshed.com's articles on PHP:


Devshed has a LOT of PHP tutorials, and I think you'll like their
presentation style.  Devshed also has some stuff on Python web


but you'll probably want to look at the Python CGI topic guide for more


I hope these resources help you find an ideal solution.  Good luck!
