i've tried hard to get this work - but i'm now stuck maybe somone can help.

I wannt to have a Field in der cms for a specific page type - ok thats easy

this field should be used to get a color value into the template - the editor shoud be able to edit this color

it is possible - i've done that to show this value outside from a html tag but inside it won't show

<li class="$LinkingMode" style="border-bottom:1px solid #$Color;"> $Color <a href="$Link".............
the first one won't show ^^^^^^^
^^^^^ this one is shown

can anyone explain why this works not the way i want?
