This is another reason why a lot of us use "Hungarian Notation (lite)"
variables, parameters, etc. are preceded by a special character. In your
case, since "msg" is a parameter to the DisplayMessage handler, it would be
"pMsg", which doesn't interfere with any reserved words.
Not that it isn't *impossible* to overlap reserved words this (tExt =
'text', sIn = 'sin', etc.), but it *is* very rare that this would happen.
