[mod_python] Newbie - Development tools

I know that I can use any number of different editors that are 'Ok' for 
the job, or even 1/2 of the job.  What I'm looking for is ONE editor 
that is good at both Python and HTML (syntax highlighting, code 
completion, etc) all in one tool.  The way I've got my stuff coded, 
there isn't one bit of python in my HTML pages and only a tiny bit of 
HTML in my Python scripts that I'm passing back to the HTML template.  
I'd like to be able to setup something like a 'project' in an IDE that 
let me click on any of the files there and edit them.  I'd like to be 
able to preview the html as I build it without having to jump to a 
browser.  I'd like to drag-n-drop some html tags onto a palette and have 
it generate code.  But, I don't want to use something as bulky as 
Eclipse.  Any ideas.  I appreciate the input already given, but am 
looking for something a bit more all-encompassing.
