The .tmpl file is not a PHP file, nor is it processed for php
directives.  But there are several ways to do it:

  * Use a <!--function:...--> directive

  * Use <!--markup:(:if !name *-Comments:)[[$FullName-Comments | Comments]]-->

  * Create a custom global variable with the HTML you want to have
    (optionally) included at that point in the template

There are probably others, these are the three I came up with off
of the top of my head.
