error in if statement..

Hi,

The below code is my global layout..code I would like to include a if
statement in it.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
       "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8" />
  <title>Languages: <%= controller.action_name %></title>
  <%= stylesheet_link_tag 'scaffold' %>
</head>
<body>

<p style="color: green">
<% if flash[:notice].empty? %>
   <%= flash[:message] %>
<% end %>
</p>

<%= yield %>

</body>
</html>

whats wrong with the if statement here..?

Thanks in advance,
Sharma

You need to use <%= %> to get output from ERb and (as others have said) you don't use puts in templates.

You're Welcome,
