It seems like a good candidate -- it's been around a long time (in one 
form or another), its scope is very defined, and it's something people 
often look for.

HTMLgen has some quirkiness to it, though.  It's not as tight as a 
simple HTML generator could be.  Would it make sense to use a more 
minimal XML generator, that could also do XHTML generation (maybe with 
a little validation thrown in)?  Is there any library like this already 
included in Python xml packages?  I do like generating HTML with a 
Python syntax (when in-code HTML generation is called for).

Quixote's PTL has some stuff related to this as well (at least related 
to quoting), but I don't remember much about it.
