Symptoms

Using datafile (P1_MESSAGE_BOX) and region template (RGTMP_MESSAGE_BOX) the WCM_PLACEHOLDER service does not render the contents of the datafile.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Call the WCM_PLACEHOLDER service as follows:
/cs/idcplg?IdcService=WCM_PLACEHOLDER&templateDocName=RGTMP_MESSAGE_BOX&dataFileDocName=P1_MESSAGE_BOX
2. This returns the region template output but where the data is supposed to render, just the element syntax such as ${dataFile.title} and ${dataFile.content} is rendered.
3. To ensure the data file is being called correctly, remove the reference to the region template and use the URL below.
This works successfully and the output of the datafile in the browser.
/cs/idcplg?IdcService=WCM_PLACEHOLDER&dataFileDocName=P1_MESSAGE_BOX
