Hi again,
I dont think you can use tiles direct. Would be very nice-to-have but I still 
use that extra tag in the tile, passing in the key string as a parameter and then

<tiles:useAttribute name="metaKeywords" />
<fmt:message key="${metaKeywords}"/>

It's fairly clunky but I only use it for browser titles and other strings that 
need to go in the layout yet have context-specificity.
