Just wondering about ways to embed SS variables in HTML.
I'm doing the following:

<% control Days %>
<span><img src="$DayNo.png"/></span>
<% end_control %>

$DayNo is my variable, and I have several .png pictures (1.png, etc) to display. I know the . is for method calls, so is there any way to avoid this?

EDIT: Found the answer: curly braces.
<img src="{$DayNo}.png"/>
