Hi,
  I have a question regarding dictionaries. When I compare them as

if (dict1 == dict2):
  print 'ok'

Where dict1 and dict2 shoudl have the same key and corresponding key values.
It seems to work. Is it meant to work, or am I just being lucky.

And secondly why won't thjis work:

for i,j in list1,list2:
  #do something with i and j

TIA
