Response page variables display as $(url.host) and $(x-exception-category)

Below is the response page. This is being served correctly when the webpage is blocked due to URL category filter.

The variables for <url/> and <category/> don't seem to get replaced correctly.

PanOS 8.1.10.

Webpage text displays as "The requested URL host is: $(url.host) Which has been categorized as: $(x-exception-category)"

The <url/> and <category/> placeholder tags look right when I compare it to my own custom page.  It's really a long shot, but this line in your page is throwing me off a bit.  I wonder if you're creating a problem with open < brackets that aren't closed.

 Maybe try it like this (or omitting it altogether as a test):
