Description

There is a typo on the page http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.2/intro/tutorial01/ under the "Creating a project" heading, the line that has the typo is:
"From the command line, cd into a directory where you’d like to store your code, then run the command django-admin.py startproject mysite. This will create a mysite directory in your current directory."

But the command should be 'django-admin startproject mysite' shouldnt it? I believe the .py extension is wrong and easily noticed by many users, but there will be many newbie users who could be confused. The command did not work with the .py extension, as to be expected since there were no files in the directory.

My mistake! Clearly in the next paragraph it explains... I just got hung up on the command and then got sidetracked. Sorry!
