Hello again

Using TeXlive and Winedt on a Windows machine....

When I try to typeset


    model1\= $\leftarrow$ lm(weight$\sim$height)\\
                                \>\# Linear model to be used later\\
    plot(weight$\sim$height)    \>\# Basic scatterplot\\
                       \>\>\# Horizontal line at mean of weight\\
                        \>\>\# Vertical line at mean of height\\

using the pdflatex button, I get an error that 'something is missing,
perhaps a missing \item'

When I try to typeset just this bit with 'compile selected block', 
everything after the second line is overprinted onto the same line.

I have a feeling I'm missing something simple, but I've been looking at
this for 30 minutes, and trying to find help in several books, to no

Any help is, as always, appreciated
