[Portfolio] Message bundle calls in jsps w/ parameters

I'm doing some customization work for our instance of osp and I have a question.

I am trying to use a message bundle value with parameters sent in. The {0} and {1} stuff. This is in a jsp file.   I notice that in 2.7 version of osp that the following is used:

<div class="alertMessage">
   <fmt:message key="text_AreYouSureRemove">
      <fmt:param value="${label}"/>
      <fmt:param value="${displayText}"/>

But in 2.9 it is:

<div class="alertMessage">
   <c:out value="${msgs.text_AreYouSureRemove}"/>

It looks like throughout osp there was a move from using <fmt:message to <c:out.  After some detective work I *think*that  this might have happened during some i18 work in:




Does <c:out... support parameters being sent in like <fmt:message had <fmt:param?  I need to make some changes in our local code because I need to send in some string parameters.  However, since I noticed this <fmt:message to <c:out change I want to make sure that I am calling it correctly.  The only way that I know how to do it is with <fmt:message and <fmt:parms.  But I am willing to learn if someone has a way to do it with <c:out.

Thank you, in advance, for any guidance that you can send this way.
