Request Variable changed to Constant
The term Variable in CD is used about a bit of code or text that stays the same on several pages. This type of code/text is usually called a Constant in programming because it never or seldom change. The term Variable is reserved for items that are changed by the program during execution of the code. In my opinion the term Constant would convey the meaning and possibilities much better to the users.
Thanks for your comments! We'll be sure to consider them for the next release.

Personally I think that a term like "placeholder" would be better, considering that both variable and constant mean little to non-programmers.
John, you are right - Placeholder is a better term.
Shortcut or glossary or snippet is even better ....
