python class decorator with arguments / python / decorator / python-decorators

How can I make two decorators in Python that would do the following?

@makebold
@makeitalic
def say():
   return "Hello"

...which should return:

"<b><i>Hello</i></b>"

Answer #1

And of course you can return lambdas as well from a decorator function:

def makebold(f): 
    return lambda: "<b>" + f() + "</b>"
def makeitalic(f): 
    return lambda: "<i>" + f() + "</i>"

@makebold
@makeitalic
def say():
    return "Hello"

print say()
