Curly braces in templates

i have in my template: {$Date.Format(l Y/m/d)}, and the result is: {$Monday 2007/08/13}
I.e. the curly braces are in the output as well. I have noticed, each non-curly-braced replacement has a curly-braced replacement, except one, in SSViewer.php, so I have added this missing one:

Btw. A comma in the argument: $Date.Format(l, Y/m/d)
causes an error. Is there any way, how to put the comma in the argument?

Btw2. Isn't this regexp replacing in the SSViewer a little bit complicated? What about some simple LL/LR parser?

Yeah, the reg-exp parser just kind of grew out of all proportion; a better parser needs to be made ;-)
