Pydoc is great - no make that fantastic. However, I was never fond of the look of help pages displayed when pydoc is used in webserver mode. Pydoc uses hard-coded styling options (including font and colors) based on deprecated html 4 syntax.
I decided to see if I could make it more customizable and, after a half-day coding sprint, I offer you mod_pydoc, which is somewhat more easily customizable using css. The new version has a simplified styling as default.
mod_pydoc is only available from github (for now); I'm hoping that people with better designing skills will contribute some code to make the output look better than my feeble attempt. Eventually, my intention would be to file a feature request to python.org and submit it as a possible improvement on the current module.
