If your requirement is for all of the interface work to be done by 
people who understand Python and HTML, not just HTML then I'd suggest 
you take a look at Quixote - http://www.mems-exchange.org/software/quixote/

Its got a very useful Forms framework which is explained in a tutorial 
here - http://www.quixote.ca/learn/2.html
