White space sensitivity is actually a very good feature. It _forces_ you to
be neat, makes the code much more readable, and avoids the problems people
tend to get into with curly brackets. The only problem is confusion between
tabs and spaces (especially when working with someone else's code), which is
easy to fix.
Zope is not something I would recommend. While it is written in python, it
uses it's own language for the web page generation, which didn't appeal to
me. This is in contrast to http://webware.sourceforge.net/ which allows you
to do PSP (think JSP with python) or servlets.
