Description

Hi. {% url view_name as var %} seems to create a var whose scope is the block where the tag was called. This is not evident from the documentation, and took me a little while to figure out.

I assume this is the behavior of any other templatetag that lets you create a variable. Maybe you could add a section about scoping in the template system, and then have a link to it from the docs for each templatetag.

I am using Django 1.1 on Google App Engine, if that makes a difference.
