<ao:message>

Writes a value from the current localization bundle given its key. Writes the value with proper escaping based on the context of the tag.

Any number of "arg###" attributes may be provided, where ### is the substitution parameter index, starting at zero. For example, there could be arg0="First" arg1="Second" for two arguments. They will be passed-on to the message format.

Additionally, message substitution arguments may be provided by nested <ao:messageArg> tags.

These additional arguments will first fill-in any gap in the numeric ranges provided by "arg###" attributes. Because the first argument is zero, if arg1="Second" arg2="Third", then the first nested <ao:messageArg> would be applied filling the spot of arg0.

Once all gaps are filled, these additional arguments will be added after all provided as "arg###" attritutes.

This tag must be nested inside a <ao:bundle> tag.

The content type depends on the value provided to the type attribute, and defaults to text/plain. The content is checked for well-formedness based on its type:

  • javascript or text/javascript - no validation
  • json or application/json - no validation
  • ld_json or application/ld+json - no validation
  • text or text/plain - no validation
  • url or text/url - must be a valid URL
  • xhtml or application/xhtml+xml - must be well-formed XHTML content. (Note: Currently only checks character values.)
  • xhtml_attribute or application/xhtml+xml+attribute - must be a valid XHTML attribute.
