Other than outdenting the whole thing, are you using a 'non-standard'
character set? Are you sure that '(' isn't an alternative encoding
variant that python isn't recognising as a parenthesis? I've see nthat
sometimes with Japanese or unicode encoding.
Just a thought...
(Just to check, I tried your code in ERIC and it ran fine for me once
the indenting was fixed up)
