The following is a SQL extract from a very long query which runs fine.  However I am trying to add some HTML formatting so that I can run the sql query within a wiki.  I have everything worked out just fine.  However I want the ?????? to return the value for bob from the database.  Currently it will return text "??????".  I want it to return the value from the database IE "25".

,CASE
      WHEN bob >= 10 THEN '<span style="background: #FFF; border: 1px solid #999;padding: 1px 12px;">??????</span>'
      WHEN bob < 10THEN '<span style="background: #FFFFF0; border: 1px solid #999;padding: 1px 12px;">??????</span>'
      WHEN bob < 5 THEN '<span style="background: #e99; border: 1px solid #999;padding: 1px 12px;">??????</span>'
      ELSE '--'
      END AS bob
