First code snippet

Code is missing a <p> tag before the <form> starts or there is an extra </p> tag after the </form>.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Remove the </p> from the line after the </form>

</p> <--- Remove this line
{% ifnotequal error None %}

This problem also occurs on page 156 and 157 and needs to be fixed there as well.

code below Figure 4-10

In the code showing what the reader should see when they "view the source of this page" there are paragraph tags <p> and </p> which are not there as the book has us enter one <br> (which is missing) and no <p>'s.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Lets fix the code rather than the "View Source" - on page 85, the last four lines of the code sample should be:

print '''<form method="post" action="/">
<p>Enter Guess: <input type="text" name="guess"/></p>
<p><input type="submit"></p>

Last paragraph

In the last code sample on page 70 "Y = Simple()" should be "y = Simple()" and in the text that follows where it says "it would print out 1 for y and 4 for x" it should read "it would print out 2 for y and 4 for x".

Note from the Author or Editor:
Make the change exactly as described by Tom. Change the "Y" from upper to lower case in the code sample and change the "1" to "2" in the descriptive text in the third line from the bottom of the physical page.

Chris Pedrick should be Chris Pederick
