I Need a List of Geoprocessing Tool Messages

I am making Python geoprocessing scripts and I would like for text to appear showing a message about what the script is doing. I want it to show both errors and also show what process is going on. For example, I see in a sample script from ESRI this code:
msgSuccess= ConversionUtils.gp.GetIDMessage(86115) #"Successfully built pyramids on "

So I would like to find a list of what the various messages are, and not just error messages. Somewhere there is a list where you can discover that message ID 86115 means "Successfully built pyramids" but I cannot find it. In ArcGIS help I did find a list of "Tool Errors and Warnings" but this only shows errors and not routine messages that announce what process is running or completed. So where can I find a list of all the messages with their ID number and not just error messages?
