Don't use TextEdit
Authored by: boxcarl on Sep 18, '08 05:15:38AM

This is mostly Apple's fault. If you use a good text editor with invisible turned on (which is basically a necessity for doing Python), you'll see that they mixed tabs and spaces in one file--which drives Python's parser nuts and leads to disaster if you aren't extremely careful.
