It's also explained in the HTML-manual:
2.6.5. dollar signs
In message or object boxes, message arguments starting with a dollar
sign and a number (like "$1" or "$3-bazoo") are variables which are
substituted with values supplied as part of the environment the
message is passed in.
Note the "starting with a dollar".
