[pmwiki-users] Problem with conditional markup equal ?

Hello list !

I have a problem. I would like to test if two variables are equal to 
each other. One of them is stored in a page text variable, the other is 
"present" in the name of the page. It could be, more specifically, an 
existent or non-existent page (I desactivate the message of non-existent 
page, so, the "variable" is located in the adress bar).

In the group header, I test this, for example :

- The name of the page where I will execute the test : 

- The value of the page text variable called $:ptv : GYheJLMrK. It is 
located in Utilisateurs.test

- the conditional test : (:if equal "{(substr '{*$Name}' 4 9)}" 
"{Utilisateurs.{(substr '{*$Name}' 13)}$:ptv} ] ":) Great ! (:if:)

Problem : the conditional markup "equal" doesn't work ! I don't have 
"Great". It is strange because both expressions work, independently of 
the test. I have the good result which is displayed in both case 
(GYheJLMrK in this example).

Apparently, the problem come from the second term {(substr '{*$Name}' 
13)} (I eliminated the other candidates).

Does anyone have an idea of ​​the origin of the problem: just the 
syntax, sequence of execution, php version ...? I block !

Thanks for your help.
