Hmmm, right now I am creating new content for the Documentation tab of
the Derby Web pages.  I think it might be good to add new sub-page
about messages.  I currently don't have access to the messages.xml
file. Are there already some intro comments in that file?  If yes,
then perhaps we can use that and point people to the Web page...
ensuring the content is the same in both places.  If there isn't then
we can add some info to the Web page and whenever this comes up on the
list we can point people to that page.

What do you think?
