Stuck on some "Entry pack" code for GUI

P: n/a
Please ignore the rest of the code, except for the highlighted part (or the line 'ent1=Entry(topf, width=25)' to line 'ent1.insert(INSERT, wrong, if you cannot see the color). You can copy this into Python and make sure you have the GIF file in the same dir. Also, make sure that you have PIL installed.

I cannot get this to work. I get an error after running it and what I'm trying to do it to evaluate what the person enters in the box for the capital of Alabama. I want the user to enter the capital and if it's not right, I want the program to tell them within that box. Apparently, Python does not like the "0.0" entry within the box. Why is this not working?

from Tkinter import *

class Gui(Frame):

def lab(self):
# A generic text label for the frame
self.lab1 = Label(base, text = "Text for label") #text will be reset later

def but(self):
# A generic button for the frame
self.but1 = Button(bottom, text="Take the quiz") #text and command to be set later

def labR(self):
# A generic text label for the right frame
self.lab1R = Label(R, text = "Text for label") #text will be reset later
self.lab1R.pack(side = TOP)

#def butL(self):
# A generic button for the left frame
#self.but1L = Button(L, text="text on button") #text and command to be set later
#self.but1L.pack(side = LEFT)

# A generic button for the right frame
self.but1R = Button(RB, text="text on button") #text and command to be set later
self.but1R.pack(side = LEFT)

#def entcap(None):
# A generic text entry for the left frame
#self.entcap1 = Entry(width=25) #width can be changed later
#self.entcap1.pack(side = BOTTOM)

# A generic text entry for the right frame
