How do you customize error messages?

This is from the Notes on-line help. Create a form with the one of the following names. On the form, there must be an editable text field named MessageString to hold the error message.

Form name
Displays to Web users when...
$$ReturnDocumentDeleted The user successfully deletes documents.
$$ReturnAuthenticationFailure The user's name and password can't be verified.
$$ReturnAuthorizationFailure The user doesn't have a high enough access level to access the database.
$$ReturnGeneralError Any other errors occur.

For the errors and deletion messages before you enter a database or if you are serving HTML files, you can create a Mapping Error Messages document in the a database created from the Notes 4.61 Domino Web Server Configuration template.
