She didn't know what the message means or how to fix it.

If she were using LaTeX-2.09 then she could not have gotten that
message!  The compatibility mode IS part of the package that runs

So she has (I infer) LaTeX2e available BUT because of the first line
of her .tex file, I infer that she is getting it to switch to
"LaTeX-2.09 compatibility mode".  Being a beginner, she presumably did
not know about this switch.  So saying 'use LaTeX2e' is useless to her
- she (probably) ALREADY has it available and is calling it the right
way from the command line!  It is much more helpful to say HOW to
solve the problem!
