Dear Hans,

that helped a lot, indeed. Thank you.

I have a problem, though:

(:input hidden var '{$$(wikiword {$$nachname} {$$vorname})}':)

does not perform the (:wikiword ... :) function at my installation.  
When I try to insert additional ":", the parser interprets the first  
":)" as the end of the input markup. What am I doing wrong here? Is  
there a documentation for nested function calls?

Again, thanks a lot.
