<Messages>

The Messages element specifies textual messages for aspects of the document that are not part of the document content itself. Some example messages include messages that provide information about the document such as the author and publisher or messages that provide additional information to the reader of a document when the reader enters an invalid registration code for a document that requires a registration code.
