I have recently tried installing cherrypy to no avail, and it got me wondering, is there a way to build websites using the wxpython toolkit?

if somebody knows the answer and could point me in the right direction it would be a massive help

I believe wxPython is just an applications interface framework. What you want to build websites is HTML, JavaScript, perhaps PHP and other such web-related things.
Other approaches for web development would include Django for Python, Ruby on Rails, and AJAX.

Ultimately, however, websites are initially created with HTML (and CSS etc...).
