That's fine, but there's no point apologising publically if you 
don't resend your question to the tutor list.

You asked:

oh? is cherrypy compaitable with Python 3?

>     index.exposed = True

is that line with exposed making the return statement visible? sorry
to ask:( just interested to know what is being set to True
[end quote]

Yes, Cherrypy is compatible with Python 3. See the CherryPy website:


"Runs on Python 2.5+, 3.1+, Jython and Android."

For security, CherryPy defaults to *not* exposing anything on the 
Internet. So the line "index.exposed = True" tells CherryPy that it is 
okay to expose the "hello world" application to the Internet.
