It may be best to read my example above in this order:
1. See the picture at http://www-math.ucdenver.edu/~wcherowi/courses/m4408/gtln8.html
2. Take the python representation of that
[I, 6, [I, 2, [L, 1], [I, 4, [L, 3], [L, 5]]], [I, 8, [L, 7], [L, 9]]]
Indent that a bit:
Now compare with the picture above
Only catch is you must see it 'lying down'
Shouldn't be too hard given that we've all got used to seeing :-) as a smiley :-)
