Variable Tags

Variable tags are mostly used to create new variables or change a variable's contents in some manner. Some of the tags can also be used to create new tags or insert various contents of variables, files, etc into a webpage.

Variables are mostly created with tags like <set> and <define> and are reached through entities (&scope.variable;). [More about variables]
