$lang in a Block

I created an html block, and I want to use a custom $lang.my_text variable inside it. Is this possible? If so, how is it done? This didn’t work:

{$lang.my_text}

HTML blocks will strip smarty tags, since smarty isn’t html :wink:

The only thing you can do is duplicate HTML block template (or create a new one) and then you can use smarty by editing that template to your liking.
