You probably also need to do something like this:

context.put("dollarSymbol","$"); I'm not sure what the exact syntax for the renderer is as I've never used it, but maybe... render.recurse("#set(${dollarSymbol}${element} =${elementValue})")

or

render.recurse("#set(${dollarSymbol}${dollarSymbol}element =
\${dollarSymbol}elementValue)")

However, why not just set all of these values from your java code?
