I'll through out one other possibility to consider.  Use tcl (not tk) 
together with tclhttpd.  This is a web server written entirely in tcl. 
It is small, modular, easy to extend, and is plenty fast enough for the 
purpose discussed.  It is commonly used for embedding a webserver such 
as this.  If anyone is interested, they should check Brent Welch's book 
for more information on tclhttpd.

And I believe the entire tcl installation, together with tclhttpd is 
smaller than Apache.

That would kill two birds with one stone.
