The code defined for $FmtPV is in quotes, because it will be evaluated 
in PageVar(). When that happens, there are a few variables that are 
available directly in your code: $pagename, $pn, $group, $name, $page.

$pagename is the page currently requested for browsing, and $pn is 
either the same, or some remote page where you need to get the $Title, 
or some $:PTV. $page is the full page metadata (text, author, dates, ip 
address, etc.). Here I'll use $pn because I'll have to get information 
from different pages.

In our case, when a variable {$TitreArticle} is requested, it will be 
evaluated inside PageVar() and that code will call once again PageVar() 
but with a different argument, for the page text variable.

Now that I think of it, it can be optimized to directly call 

   $FmtPV['$TitreArticle'] = 'PageTextVar($pn, "TitreArticle")';

This should be slightly faster than my first line but not noticeably -- 
maybe a few microseconds. I'm sure the time I spent writing this change 
you reading it will only be saved in several hundred years. ;-)
