Sorry, having a hard time following. Did __PARTIALHEADER__ not work either? any
file defined (i believe with UPPER CASE) automatically becomes are VAR in that
directory (regions/). Depending on where you call it from, the syntax may
differ. Although usually __FOO__ always works.

# [var name=variablename global=1|2]
# This tag allows access to variables within other variables (or
# anywhere else, but in regular pages the direct non-tag notations
# shown on the right-hand side below are faster).
# [var VARIABLE]   is equivalent to __VARIABLE__
# [var VARIABLE 1] is equivalent to @@VARIABLE@@
# [var VARIABLE 2] is equivalent to @_VARIABLE_@
