When a student gets a problem correct, the following message shows:

"You are Correct. Computer's answer now shown above.
Your receipt is 491-88"

What tag should I use to get a message to appear at about the same place?
Does <solved> work? 
Like this?


Or should I use a block with a condition, and if so does one just use the
condition "solved". 
<block condition="solved">

How does one place this message?  Can it be interspersed with the correct
statement, i.e.

"You are correct.  Message.
Computer's answer now shown above.
Your receipt is 491-88"

I'm writing a problem where students are asked to find the density of a
series of metals.  When they get the density right, I want the following to

You are correct. This metal is silver. (or whatever metal it was).

The idea is that they can then print this page and bring it to lab so they
have a list of densities that they will need for their lab experiment.  But
I don't want to give the identity away before they work the problem.

Any suggestions?  (I guess I could just generate a table that will show up
after all parts are solved and have them print that).
