Your subject is about comments, but your problem is with 
your print statements. See below.

Try this:

data=raw_input("Type something  ") # spaces after "something"
myInput=data
print "You typed %s" % myInput # and again
try:
	print "The fourth character is %s" % myInput[3] # and again
except IndexError:
	print "There is no fourth character."
