[Chimera-users] Labeling Residues

Eric already mentioned the most important point:
that this is only the format used within the Custom Residue
Label dialog (opened with Actions... Label... residue... custom
in the Chimera menu).

The string starting with "wt" mentioned in your mail is just
an example from the man page.  If you didn't want "wt" in your
label, of course, it shouldn't appear in that string.

The Custom Residue Label dialog doesn't actually require
anyone to type in those slightly ugly strings by hand, however.
If you really wanted the label to be
for example, you would just select that serine residue, open
the dialog from the menu, and then click the buttons
(in that order) and then Apply.

Hope this clarifies -
