I've dug around looking for this information too.  But apparently, no one
has bothered writing something in python to do this.  So, like most people,
I've hacked together my own browser detection code.

The only time I've needed this hack was to detect if ie7 or less was being
used.  If you want to display png's with a transparent background, you'll
need to use proprietary microsoft attributes in your image tag.

If you want information about this, check this website.

If you're still new to Python, then I *highly* recommend you learn the
basics of the language  before attempting to write a website (
http://www.diveintopython.org/).  Once you have the basics down, try some
simple CGI stuff first, and then move into a full fledged framework (I
recommend pylons).  http://pylonshq.com/

Pylons is a very loosely coupled web framework with decent documentation.
Beware though, there is a  moderate learning curve associated with pylons.
This is especially true for someone new to Python.

Good luck!
