Introduction:

Python is a high-level, structured, open-source programming language that can be used for a wide variety of programming tasks. Python was created by Guido Van Rossum in the early 1990s; its following has grown steadily and interest has increased markedly in the last few years. Another great feature of Python is its availability for all platforms. Python can run on Microsoft Windows, Macintosh and all Linux distributions with ease. This makes the programs very portable, as any program written for one platform can easily be used on another.

Python requires some setup by downloading the Python IDLE. You can download python from www.python.org.  The Python IDLE is basically a text editor that  lets you execute Python code. If you want to use Python as a server-side language, you certainly can. Python can output HTML just like other languages can.
