Package problem

I am trying to create a package and read it in.

The package starts :

BallFall::usage = "Performs simulation of ball motion through fluid"
 (* BallFall
    a:: drag coefficient (a*v^2)

But I get this:

      BoxData[{RowBox[{RowBox[{"BeginPackage", "[", "\"Roulette`BallSim1`\"", 
                  "]"}], "\n"}], "\[IndentingNewLine]", 
          RowBox[{RowBox[{"BallFall", "::", "usage"}], "=", " ", 
              RowBox[{"\"Performs simulation of ball motion through fluid\"",
                   "\[IndentingNewLine]", " "}], 
              RowBox[{"(*", " ", 
                  RowBox[{"BallFall", "\n", 
                      RowBox[{RowBox[{"a", "::", " ", "drag"}], " ", 

Whtas happening ?
Is the file corrupt perhaps ?
Can you edit .m files in the notebook interface ?
