Good point. 
I didn't mention that I'm using $:status as an enumeration from php:

$status = PageTextVar($pn,'status');
case 'active':
case 'suspended':

Still, using (:status:$[active]:) could be done by changing the php code:

if(XL('active')==$status) {
} elseif(XL('suspended')==$status) {

Either way would work fine. I have a slight preference for the first way, because I find using switch() more 
natural, but it'a a matter of personal taste.  Thanks.
