Referencing template parameters in optional region expressions

I have a template parameter Product_ID which has a default value of "xxxnn".  I would like to define an optional region, which shows only when the value of Product_ID has been set to something other than its default value.  



I have defined the region using the following expression (generated by Dreamweaver), but it doesn't evaluate properly, because the region shows even when Product_ID is equal to "xxxnn"


<!-- TemplateBeginIf cond="Product_ID!=&quot;nnnxx&quot;" -->


What is wrong with this expression?  How do I write it so that it evaluates to True when Product_ID="xxxnn"?

(Product_ID is defined using the following expression":

<!-- TemplateParam name="Product_ID" type="text" value="xxxnn" -->)

You need to identify the parameter like this;

@@@(paramname)@@@

Outside of your expression.

Here is an explanation;
