     1.9 +TWiki Variables are names enclosed in percent signs that are that are expanded to some other text when the topic
    1.10 +is displayed. For example, =%<nop>TOPIC%= is expanded to %TOPIC%.
    1.11 +Some variables can take arguments in curly braces - for example, =%<nop>INCLUDE{"OtherTopic" ARG="arg"}%=.
    1.12 +
    1.13 +Many TWiki variables are built-in, and others are predefined for your convenience. You can also define your own
    1.14 +TWiki Variables at the entire site, individual web, or individual topic level. For more information,
    1.15 +go to *[[TWikiVariables]]*
    1.16 +
    1.17 +TWiki Variables are fully expanded _before_ any of the TWiki text formatting rules are applied.
    1.18 +
    1.19 +*Documentation Graphics:* There are many graphics available to use in your topics. Use =%<nop>ICON{"help"}%=, =%<nop>ICON{"tip"}%=, and =%<nop>ICON{"warning"}%= to get: %H%, %T%, and %X%, respectively. TWikiDocGraphics lists them all.

    1.21 +%ICON{"tip"}% To "escape" a variable, prefix it with an exclamation mark. Write: =!%<nop>SOMEVARIABLE%= to get: !%SOMEVARIABLE%.
