On some operating systems, for instance a Macbook Pro with Retina, the
bottoms of hanging letters such as 'g' or 'y', as well as underscorces, cannot be seen in IDLE.  The fix is to go to Options -> Configure IDLE, and change the size of the default font to 9 or 11. 

Can we add this line to and ?  It is not obvious, especially to the newbie who is trying to write their first python program that the inability to type underscores is a font problem.
