In a copier having a cathode ray tube (CRT) display, messages to be displayed to the human operator are defined by a message identifier (ID) and up to three message modifier bytes (MB), i.e., not by the text of the message itself. This ID and the various MB's are used to retrieve the text of the message from a message storage memory. The content of these memory locations are used to display the message on the CRT. The ID and MB's of the message currently on the CRT's screen are stored in memory.
