Needs[]


I have a Mathematica file containing code organized as a package.   When
I execute "Needs["FolderName`FileName`"] it appears that Mathematica is
able to read the file FolderName:FileName.m, but I get this warning:

Needs::nocont: the context FolderName`Filename` was not created.

I am running Mathematica 3.0 on a Macintosh (Quadra).

What didn't Mathematica like about my file?  To forestall one possible
answer, yes I did begin the file with

BeginPackage["FolderName`FileName`"];

and yes "Needs" works as expected on files in the Standard Packages
folder.  

I note that some of the cells in my file are curiously marked: the cell
brackets have, near the top, a diagonal line slanting northwest to
southeast.  What does this mean?
