interpreter use... help?

How do I type try and except statements into the interpreter?  I know this
sounds REALLY REALLY dumb, but I'm having problems.

Here is what I do:

>>> try:
           except TypeError:

SyntaxError: invalid syntax

The except part is highlighted.
I just can't make the except go one indentation level lower even by pressing
the backspace!
Short of putting everything inside a module and importing, is there a way
around this?
I'm using IDLE 0.8 on win2k BTW.  See my previous posts - I'm having a lot
of problems in general.

Your help is greatly appreciated.
