Possible to use template variable in design html block?

Is this possible?

Blocks are included after the template engine runs. So you can’t use template variables in html blocks. There is not currently the concept of a ‘template block’.

So I am guessing I would have to manually type in my skin path?

I have no idea what you’re talking about.

If you provided an example of what you wanted to do or code about what you’ve done along with a statement of what you want, it might be easier to help.
