[Process] processes its parameter as a document containing Lasso code. The string passed to [Process] must use normal Lasso delimiters like [ ... ] and <?LassoScript ... ?> around embedded Lasso code. All of the surrounding text will be returned along with the results of the processed code.

The [Process] tag expects its parameter to be a Unicode string. Passing in text encoded in a character set such as ISO-8859-1 may cause unexpected results.

The -Name parameter can be returned within the processed code usng the [Include_CurrentPath] tag and will be used for error reporting.

Warning: For maximum security, untrusted third-party Lasso code should never be executed on your server. Only code written by trusted developers should be executed.
