>From the tutorial, on strings and zero relative indeces,
where word =
'HelpA'.

I have no problem with this, we are asking for 4th entry:
>>> word[4]
'A'

but it seems to me the following is asking for the 0th, 1th and 2th entries
(ordinal 1st ,2nd and 3rd) but all we are getting is the zero-th and one-th.

>>> word[0:2]
'He'

What am I missing here?  Makes me feel like I've been taking stupid pills.

Thanks,
Rick
