As others have pointed out, browsers only know JavaScript. But take a 
look at pyjamas: http://pyjamas.pyworks.org/ which translates Python 
into browser-specific JavaScript. It is designed around a Python port of 
Google Web Toolkit, but you don't need to use that aspect of it. Of 
course the ability to create web pages using the ported GWT widgets is 
pretty impressive. No more HTML!

Take a look at the pyjamas helloworld example.
