body-content Attribute

You specify the type of a tag’s body content using the body-content attribute:

bodycontent="empty | scriptless | tagdependent"

You must declare the body content of tags that do not accept a body as empty. For tags that have a body there are two options. Body content containing custom and standard tags and HTML text is specified as scriptless. All other types of body content (for example, SQL statements passed to the query tag) is specified as tagdependent. If no attribute is specified, the default is scriptless.
