Thank you, Martin, for your informative response.  If I understand
correctly what you're saying, it would work to do (in psuedo code
and reduce to simplest form):

        store_to_db(text = "My name is $name.")

The at runtime I could do:

        $name = 'Raquel'
        echo "My name is $name"
        OUTPUT:  My name is Raquel

Is that correct?  

What I'm trying to do is to create a web page where users can create
their own page text, store it into a database along with certain
available variables or functions, then display that page.

As a rule, there is no surer way to the dislike of men than to
behave well where they have behaved badly.
