As Rohan mentions...
"Be careful: do not mix tabs and spaces in a code block;"

It is one of the first pitfalls a Python newbie comes-accross, if you
do not use a good Python source editor / IDE.

There are some file editors that do automatic indentation by "tab"
insertion while writing code, but when you go back to edit that line,
it seems to insert spaces.
