Just pure guesses here at what is trying to be accomplished, but I'm 
assuming that the form is being built dynamically, hence the need to use a 
variable to do lookups in to the validator (looking at the OP again, though, 
I think my assumption is incorrect. It looks like he just needs a <TMPL_IF 
NAME="err_field_name">...</TMPL_IF>), then I'd just use the same 
hash/array/object(s) that was used to build the dynamic form to both build 
the DFV profile and look up error messages in the template.
