  +<p>In Tomcat 3.3.1, each attribute value may use the ant-style variable
  +substitution by using &quot;${<i>variable</i>}&quot; in the attribute
string, i.e.
  +<i>attribute</i>=&quot;<i>text</i>${<i>variable</i>}<i>text</i>&quot;.</p>
  +
  +<p>The <i>variable</i> must specify a Context property, a ContextManager
  +property, or System property.  The Context properties take precedence, followed
  +by ContextManager propertiers, and finally System properties.  If a matching
  +property isn't found the attribute string is left as is.  Note that properties
  +are not the same as attributes, and attributes are not accessible via
  +&quot;variable substitution&quot;.</p>
  +
  +<p><a name="context_prop"></a>There are two methods for setting Context
properties.</p>
  +
  +<ol>
  +  <li>Include a <code><i>name</i>=&quot;<i>value</i>&quot;</code>
  +    specification on the Context element, where <i>name</i> doesn't correspond
  +    to a Context attribute. For example:<br>
  +    <pre>    &lt;Context ... my.prop="myvalue" ... &gt;</pre></li>
  +  <li>Include a <code>Property</code> element within the scope of the
  +    Context element. For example:<br>
  +    <pre>
  +    &lt;Context ... &gt;
  +        &lt;Property name=&quot;my.prop&quot; value=&quot;myvalue&quot;
/&gt;
  +        ...
  +    &lt;/Context&gt;</pre>
  +    This form of setting properties is logged if the Context's debug
  +    level is one or greater.<br><br></li>
  +</ol>
  +
  +<p><b>Note:</b> The property values may themselves use &quot;variable
  +substitution&quot;, provided the specified property is already defined.</p>
