I don't get this...

In the first step it says to create a new file so I clicked on File > new > file, and then named it messy. This is what is sounds like it is telling me to do, but it doesn't seem right to be because all the words are completely black. I don't know how to get past this.

Messy.java
import java.util.*;

public class Messy {
    public   static void main(String[]      args){
System.out.println("five");System.out.println("one");
    System.out.println("six");
    System.out.println( "four"       );     System.out.println("two");
    Please comment out this line and
    this line as well with a hotkey that does multi-line commenting
    List<String> numberWords = Arrays.asList("six", "seven", "eight", "nine");
    for (String numberWord:         numberWords) {
      // Use the sout shortcut to write out numberWord;
      }
    }}

Under File > New you have a variety of options. Pick "Java Class" instead of "File".
