I have often wanted to display an informational message at the top of the page.  Rather than just slap a Long Edit Box at the top of the screen, I decided to look for a nice looking way to do it.  One of the great things about PeopleSoft, it always has an example somewhere in the huge product for what you are trying to do.

Here are some of the messages that I found:
