Can you use variables in Knowledge Base articles?

Is there a way to use fields from the K1000 service tickets in knowledge base articles? 

I've created a couple of simple knowledge base articles that I use when I notify H.R. that the A/D user account has been created. Since there are several people in the H.R. Department, I would like to use a variable for the requesting user's name in those articles. Something like:

The new account you requested is complete. " 

Nothing fancy, just something a little more personal than "Occupant". And since I create a number of these on a daily basis, it would be a time saver for me. 

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I don't think this works because the variables are only available as part of a ticket rule that sends emails. We had a similar situation and I created an asset type to store message templates. A custom ticket field shows the titles of the message templates. If a message template is selected then a custom rule emails the template to the user.
