A view helper for rendering flash messages to HTML with reasonable CSS structure. Handles multiple flash messages in one request. Wraps them in a <div> tag with id #flash containing a <div> for each message with classes of .flash and the message type. E.g.:

It is your responsibility to style these classes the way you want in your stylesheets.

If you use this, the collection key will be appended to the top-level div id (e.g.,
'flash_login' if you pass a key of  :login).

Examples:

<div id='flash'>
  <div class='flash info'>Today is Tuesday, April 27th.</div>
  <div class='flash warning'>Missiles are headed to destroy the Earth!</div>
</div>
