Are SEARCH blocks evaluated within HTML comments?

MartinCleaver: Are SEARCH blocks expanded within HTML comments?

It looks like they aren't, which is a shame because I wanted to see how a SEARCH expands before the result is passed to DirectedGraphPlugin

Example:
 <!-- 
   * Set QUERY=%SEARCH{params}%
 -->
<dot map=1> digraph A { 
%Q% } </dot>

 %Q

I hoped this would show me the query result that it fed to dot.

Looking at the HTML it seems that Q is left unset.

This means to debug I have to copy the SEARCH block twice, once inside dot and again after it.


It will work inside a comment block.

If you want to read %Q%, then you need to Set it, not Set QUERY. You may also need spaces around the equal sign.
