I'm using SQL Server 2008

I was looking at the RAISERROR documentation on this page:

So the syntax is this:

the first part is string message, then severity, then state

Then towards the bottom of the page it has this example with severity of 10 and state of 1:

What does a severity of 10 mean?
What does a severity of 16 mean?
What does a state of 1 mean?
