I've never figured out the syntax of init.m's.  Thus the one in

   ToFileName[{$UserBaseDirectory, "FrontEnd"} ]

has contents:

   "BasicInput.nb", "MyFormattingTools.nb", "CompleteCharacters.nb"},
ScreenRectangle->{{0, 1600}, {0, 1155}}

Do I merely put a semi-colon at the end of that and insert after that a 
new line of the following form?
