Thanks for the clarification, but I'm still a tad confused.  I'm not sure when to indent.  I understand that it has to be done.  That link was really confusing.  Very newb non-friendly.  Arrg... That site is doom.  So confusing.  I need somewhere to start from the beginning.  This site uses all kinds of big words and doesn't explain things in a clear manner.  Oh well.  Thanks for the help, though.Au> From: pine508 at hotmail.com> To: tutor at python.org> Date: Thu, 24 May 2007 15:30:34 -0400> Subject: Re: [Tutor] trouble with if> > >I'm not sure what the whole indentation thing is for.
