[docs] Section 2.1.2 tutorial question

I am reading the second page of your tutorial:

When we arrive at this example in section 2.1.2, it is not clear how to get to the secondary prompt:

>>> the_world_is_flat = 1
>>> if the_world_is_flat:
...     print "Be careful not to fall off!"
Be careful not to fall off!

If I type "if the_world_is_flat:" and hit enter, an error is generated. How do I get to the secondary prompt for the next line of the example?

I am this doing this tutorial with a bash shell.

Many thanks in advance,
