Try putting a # at the start of every line. Everyone should
understand what you mean (and you can always tell them to remove
the #'s once they copy the listing).

#import gmpy
#i = 7
#while i<100000:
## conjecture 1
#
#	if ((i % 3)>0) and ((i % 5)>0):
#		f = gmpy.fib(i)
#		ip = gmpy.is_prime(i)
#		fm = f % i
#		if (fm==(i-1)) and (ip==0):
#			print "fib %5d: %5d (mod %5d)" % (i,fm,i),
#			print gmpy.is_prime(i)
#	i += 2
#
#"""
#Conjecture #1: if i ends in 3 or 7 and fib(i) == i-1 (mod i)
#               then i is prime
#
#run #1 print all fib(i) == i-1 (mod i) that are composite
#
#fib  5777:  5776 (mod  5777) 0 <-- counter example
#fib 10877: 10876 (mod 10877) 0 <-- counter example
#fib 17261: 17260 (mod 17261) 0
#fib 75077: 75076 (mod 75077) 0 <-- counter example
#fib 80189: 80188 (mod 80189) 0
#"""

Preview looked ok, so let's see what happens when I post it.
