Are you referring to XPress tags, Synchronized Text/Shared Content, or XML
tags?

XPress tags, for the most part, are for inserting codes for formatting and
indexing info. As far as I know, it does not have a feature that works
similar to the FrameMaker or InDesign variables.

Shared Content is useful, but not the same way as Frame/ID variables. Text
content is for an entire Item (a.k.a. Frame or Object), not for in-line
text.

If XML, the same general process can also work with Frame and InDesign.

Can you clarify your usage of Quark Tags as variables?
