Hi Bill,

thanks for your tip.

I tried it with #parse. But instead of #set I use #macro ( PLACEHOLDER ) 
to get around the syntactical restrictions of #set. Macro definitions 
can take HTML fragments as they are. The references (=placeholders) then 
become macro calls. This is very close to what I intended.
