The current recomendation is to avoid them. There is almost always a
better way.

I you use them you will need to wrap the variable expansion in a

For Example:

<script type="loncapa/perl">
$sometext=&web('','\bf{ This is bold }','<i> I am italicized');
<startouttext />
Here is the output of the web function: <display>$sometext</display>
<endouttext />
