Until you save the program window to a file with a
'.py' extension, IDLE doesn't realize it's Python
source code so it doesn't do any syntax highlighting.
Ha! Thanks Don!
I knew this was a dumb question. But, Tricky! Tricky! No wonder I
couldn't find a combo of changes to revert things back. I kept looking
at my test programs, and they were all in color because I always
type the first word and SAVE to start a file! (a habit) I never noticed
You just saved me a lot of confusion time wondering if I had broken something.
