Python templating

I've got a fairly simple function to put together for my father - I want to give him a simple online form enabling him to maintain his gig list. The host supports CGI only, so obviously I'm going to use Python.

Equally obviously, I'm going to want a template engine. The problem here that there are just so many of the bloody things!

I had a quick look at YAPTU, but I just didn't like it - you shouldn't need all this re compiling business.

Cheetah looks nice, though - rather Velocity-like. This paper (found via ZOpen-X) introduces Cheetah. If you've not come across Velocity - have a look at Start up the Velocity Template Engine.
