I saw no quotes in the message. Something odd going on with the editor?

I see question marks in this one. Some encoding issue?

On to the original poster:

The code at http://rafb.net/paste/results/88yf5V76.html looks a lot better
though. Except for the mismatched parens already mentioned (line 39 and 42),
you're trying to subclass something called "base" in Account. This "base"
doesn't exist - it's not a built-in and you haven't defined it. You should
instead subclass object.

If you fix these issues, the program seems to work nicely. 
You might want to have a look at the lines using 

  str(time.strftime("%d %b %Y")) + '$' + str(amt)

I think you'd be better off pulling it out into a function and/or using a format
string and certainly putting a space between the date and the amount.
