[Lynx-dev] Press RETURN or press enter?

Lynx usually tells the operator to use the RETURN key.
However, there are messages that are inconsistent:

{ grep -F 'press enter' lynx*.pot; }
" When you are done, press enter and put a single period (.)"
" on a line and press enter again."

Is there any reason for this discrepancy?

Also note that the syntax for naming a key is inconsistent:
sometimes it is "Press <return>", sometimes it is "Hit RETURN".
The decoration "<return>" looks weird to me,
and so does the verb "Hit" in this context.
Could we change this mess to "Press [RETURN]" throughout?

#: LYMessages.c:407
msgid "Unable to open traversal errors output file."

All "Unable to" messages end with a full stop except this one.

#: LYMessages.c:342
msgid "You are already at the first document."

All "already" messages end with a full stop, except for this one.
