Best? That's a potentially contensious one. But I can tell you that if
you were to look at either Django or TurboGears you wouldn't be going
too far wrong. (I use Django, but I know that both are good.)

Cheetah's good, but if you go with Django, it has its own which is
pretty good too. (I use both at times.)
