=== [http://developer.android.com/reference/android/widget/TextView.html#attr_android:hint <code>android:hint</code>] ===
This is a default string to display when the text field is empty. Instead of using a hard-coded string as the value, the <code>"@string/edit_message"</code> value refers to a string resource defined in a separate file. Because this refers to a concrete resource (not just an identifier), it does not need the plus sign. However, because you haven't defined the string resource yet, you’ll see a compiler error at first. You'll fix this in the next section by defining the string.
