The basic idea:
Let a user use "pseudo variables" like [PHONE] to say "I want my phone number to print out here", and use a smarty modifier to replace the pseudo variable with the real smarty variable.

The Modifier:
function smarty_modifier_replace_defaults($x){
$x=preg_replace('/\[PHONE\]/i','{$default->overview.phone}',$x);
return $x;
}

The problem:
Smarty (at least I think it's smarty) is converting [PHONE] to:
{$default->overview.phone}

Which, of course, doesn't actually print the variable in the smarty template since the syntax no longer makes sense.

I've tried doing return html_entity_decode($x); but no luck. Been spinning in circles for hours on this issue, and I guess I don't know enough to ask google any more clearly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The template code generated by the modifier won't get executed anyways. How about this:

Code:
{$foo|replace:'[PHONE]':$default->overview.phone}
