A couple easy things to check right off...

(1) Make sure you have $FmtPV declared as a global in your function
(2) Make sure your markup rule is ordered such that the changes you
are making occur before they are used (i.e., '<{$var}' or before, use
?action=ruleset with diag turned on to confirm the order)
