Thymeleaf th:text Attribute

This attribute is responsible for displaying text that is evaluated from the expression inside it;​ 

For example: To display a message:

<h2 th:text="${message}">Hello Good Morning!.</h2>

The th:text attribute evaluates its value expression and sets the result as the body of the host tag, effectively replacing the “Hello Good Morning!” text we see in the code.
