New submission from David Walker:

I'm brand new to Python (and programming in general) and I'm reading "Python for Dummies" while trying to learn this.  I downloaded 3.3.1 and when I entered the command

>>> print "Hello, World!"

it would give the following error:

SyntaxError: invalid syntax
  File "<stdin>", line 1
     print "Hello, World!"

Yet when I do the same thing in v 2.7.4 it works fine.  Is there something I'm doing wrong?  Thanks in advance
