Ah, another victim of Outlook Express's HTML-by-default settings. Please
turn this off, it looks ugly for the rest of us. Go to Tools->Options,
click the Send tab, and change both "Mail Sending Format" and "News
Sending Format" to Plain Text instead of HTML. Thanks!

I suggest the Python Tutorial, found at:

http://www.python.org/doc/current/tut/tut.html

or some of the tutorials at:

http://www.python.org/doc/Newbies.html

I particularly recommend "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist"; it
will not only teach you Python, but it will also teach you some handy
problem-solving methods that can be applied in any language.
