I'd like to plot a surface defined by a list of {x,y,z} triplets.  At
present, I'm seeing an error that seems rather strange.

I generate a list of data and import it into Mathematica (a small sample

data = {
{0.1,10.0, 562.962998},
{0.2, 10.0, 907.662163},
{0.3,1.4, 259.394802},
{0.4, 1.4, 260.02852}}

Then I load the appropriate package,

<< Graphics`Graphics3D`

and then generate a plot,


Unfortunately at this stage I end up with an empty box and multiple
errors, all of form,

Graphics3D::"nlist3": "0.1` is not a list of three numbers."

Please, What does this error mean?  "data" is certainly a list of triplets.
