Hi Laura,

Right now, the friendly names are exactly the ones which you created 
when you overhauled rrefexcept71493.dita recently. Those argument names 
have been copied to messages.xml. When adding a new message, one should 
just look for examples in messages.xml. Here are some of the friendly 
argument names in messages.xml which you added and which I faithfully 
reproduced. I culled these names by searching that file for the first 
several occurrences of the <arg> tag:


Do you think that we should document these somewhere? For instance, is 
there some style advice which you would like me to add to the 
introductory comments in messages.xml?
