Finding Python help...

One problem I'm having learning (and teaching) Python is finding help on
some parts of the language. I'm wondering if I'm just looking the
Eg. I wanted to find out how to get print to leave off the trailing
newline. help(print) doesn't tell me:
File "<stdin>", line 1
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
of course, print is a keyword and not a function (which by the way I
find odd but there you are...). I found the answer eventually in the
language definition manual but it wasn't obvious. Where should I look?
Another problem, how do I find out what methods are defined on a type
like list? Again, I end up in the tutorial trying to find relevant docs.
In general, pydoc is great but I guess this inconsistency bugs me.
