It seems you've included the digit "2" in the name of the command  
\armfont. That's not possible: in command names, TeX doesn't consider  
digits as letters: for TeX, a digit (or any non-alphabetic character)  
is considered to signal the end of the command. Hence, TeX interprets  
"2" as the end of a command \arm2 and gets confused by what follows it.

Hope this helps,
