Advice for Python Reporting Tool

    I'm currently learning my way through Python and in the process
    developing a reporting tool for the company I'm working for.

    Basically the tool rips through an existing .XML file to grab the
    information needed and spits it out in a nicely formated html page that
    is easily read by anyone. This part works great, however I'm finding
    myself a bit lost on the next step.

    My employers want a graph added to the functionality. Prior to this,
    they have been loading the .XML file into excel and forming a crude
    pivot table. Of the table a nice looking graph is generated.

    My question is: how can I make that graphing step easier? Ideally I'd
    like the chart to exist on it's own page, but I have no idea where to
    even begin to implement this. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I've seen several people recommend matplotlib for this kind of thing.
