simple question re list iteration semantics

Hello all,

I have a simple question regarding semantics.

Given a list 'li', I can always do this to iterate through all items in
order:

for i in range(0, len(li)):
     print li[i]

Will this always be equivalent to


for i in li:
     print i

I assume it is, and the order will always be the same, or am I mistaken?

Would the 2nd one be considered more Pythonic? (It looks both
clearer and cleaner to me).

Thanks.

Esmail
