[Tutor] Windows IDLE error msgs?

I can get the standard Python error messages IF I execute a Python script 
via the command line OR the script I'm running from IDLE passes the initial 
syntax check and generates an execution error. However, if I have a syntax 
error that's caught in the initial syntax checking phase, IDLE merely goes 
to the particular line and highlights the line where the error was detected. 
How do I get IDLE to say specifically what's wrong?

I'm running the latest version: Python 2.4.2 (#67, Sep 28 2005, 12:41:11) 
under XP.
