    "topic" The topic that is expanded. It can be prefixed by the web name in which case the web parameter is ignorred Current topic

    expand expand="all" - all macros are expanded in the scope of the expanded topic.
    expand="create" - all macros inside sections of type 'expandvariables' are expanded the same way, and according to the same rules as when a template topic is expanded when creating a new topic
    expand="none" - no macros are expanded (they will be later in the context of the parent topic unless encoded).
    encode encode="none" - no encoding is done
    encode="entity" - the entire expanded topic is entity encoded so it can be contained inside a hidden html text field.
