A Hausdorff space is said to be completely regular if
for each pt. x in X and closed set C with x not in C,
there exists a continuous function f: X --> {0,1} s.t.
f(x)=0 and f(C)={1}.

Show that if a space is normal, it is completely regular.
How do I use Urysohn's lemma along with Hausdorffiness to show this.
