In the pagelist template, use:


    {=$FullName} {=$Description}

Then you want:

    (:pagelist fmt=#description '(:sitemap:true:)' :)

which will find only those pages having "(:sitemap:true:)" and
display them using the #description pagelist template.  (Note that
this is already possible, and doesn't require TextVars to work
except to keep the '(:sitemap:true:)' from being displayed when
viewing the page.

I don't really know what (:includepageinlists:) is supposed to mean
here.  But I'd probably just do one of:

    (:list:sitemap:)(:list:rss:)  or

to cause a page to be displayed in both the sitemap and the rss
