Maximum size in HTML_Template_IT setVariable call?

P: n/a
Hi all,
I am using the HTML_Template_IT package.

I would like to use a template something like below.

<!-- BEGIN TOPIC -->
<h1>{TITLE} ....{TOPLINK}...</h1>

{TOPIC-TEXT}
<!-- END TOPIC -->
Then have a while loop in the .php code which list topic headers
followed by topic text.

My question:

Can I do something like
while( there are more topics){
$template->setVariable("TITLE", $title);
$template->setVariable("TOPICLINK", $link);
$template->setVariable("TOPIC-TEXT", require ("..../{$topic}.inc"));
}

In order to include the topic text at the correct point? Also is there
a maximum size of text that I can
assign to a variable, some of the texts may be several hundred
characters long.

regards,
Nick.

You will need something like:

while( there are more topics){
$title = ...
$link = ...
$text = ...
$template->setCurrentBlock("TOPIC");
$template->setVariable("TITLE", $title);
$template->setVariable("TOPICLINK", $link);
$template->setVariable("TOPIC-TEXT", $text);
$template->parseCurrentBlock();
}
