I am a brand new user attempting to learn Python.  I downloaded and installed the .msi installer version 3.2.3 on May 5, 2012.  I am running Windows XP SP2 32-bit on a Pentium 4.  I opted to load all features of the program.  Installation finished without any errors.

Admittedly, despite previous programming experience with other languages, I have a lot to learn.  What I saw when I tried using the IDLE was that it would not end with ctrl-Z followed by carriage return.  Using either quit() and replying to the dialog or using ctrl-d followed by carriage return worked.  I am submitting this because the GUI interface and what documentation I have seen so far states that ctrl-z followed by carriage return is the method to use in Windows.  

IMHO possible fix options (presuming this is not something weird because I don't know what I am doing yet) would be to update the documentation for consistency or to change the behavior of the IDLE?

Thank you, in advance, for your efforts with regard to this issue.

Best Regards,
