html:link/bean message

What I am trying to do is place the url value of an html:link tag with the value from a property file that know how to get using the bean:message tag.

So, for example, I have this line:

<html:link page="<bean:message bundle='<%=bundle%>' key='call_center'/>" target="_blank"><%=ccLink%></html:link>

But the problem with this is that the url just shows up as:
<bean:message bundle='<%=bundle%>' key='call_center'/>

How can I accomplish my goal of creating an html link in a jsp, from a value in a property file?

Many Thanks

As an addendum I need to use the <html:link page tag for sure. If I could extract the value from the property file and put it into a variable or something like that using something other than the bean tag - that should work.

Thanks Again
