Yep, this works, and that's cool.

{$ .SiteName $} = "SomeDome"
{$ .TagLine $} = "I use {$ .SiteName $} Daily"

At publshing, {$ .TagLine $} becomes "I use SomeDome Daily".

Does anyone know if there're any limits?

Yes, there is a limit.

My previous post did not apply to CityDesk 2.0, it applied to an earlier version.

CityDesk 2 seems to handle this recursively (without any limits).

I did a test with four levels of nested variables.  All variables (placeholders) where replaced without a problem.
