I have managed to make your code work on my Ubuntu Feisty 7.04
system. Here is the steps I followed:

 * Install mod_python module (available in libapache2-mod-python

 * Unzip your archive in /home/david/demexp/lyu-prototype/Demexp/

 * Add a symbolic link:
     /var/www/lyu-proto -> /home/david/demexp/lyu-prototype/Demexp/

 * Add following stanza to /etc/apache2/sites-available/default file:
        <Directory /var/www/lyu-proto/python/> 
                AddHandler mod_python .py
                PythonHandler mod_python.publisher
                PythonDebug On 

 * Restart the Apache2 deamon with command:
     sudo invoke-rc.d apache2 force-reload

For the lazy ones, :-) Lyu's code can be tested here (available when my

My first comments:

 * I find the default font a bit small on my screen. Why not stick font
   size to 1.0em?

 * The display of question list is nice. However a click on the whole
   question zone should bring to the question specific page (I think
   FĂ©lix as made a similar remark);

 * I'm not totally fond of the chosen color. But I haven't a better
   proposal for now;

 * Vote confirmation is very nice. Maybe you should add a sentence like
   "Your vote has been casted as:";

 * For a large number of responses, the drop down menus are a bit

I haven't look at it yet. ;-)
