See the recent thread on IDEs.

If you are not comfortable with the "3 window IDE(*)" - which is 
the most natural one to use in Linux - then I'd say go with Eclipse 
PyDev plugin because it works pretty much identically across OS's.

Also Eclipse supports multiple languages so you can do your HTML,
SQL and Python all in one tool.

(*) - An editor window, a testing terminal and a >>> terminal.
