Patch to change the header for error pages

I propose that for the error pages we have a title like Error: No such special pages, rather than only Error.

the patch attached does this. please review it.

attachment 26069.patch ignored as obsolete

The second parameter to prepareErrorPage() could also simply be removed.

second version of patch to provide a better error page title

I have modified this patch as suggested to only have one argument for prepareErrorPage, and provide a better error title.
