Setting Current Date in Stored Procedure HTML Report Emails Direct from SQL-Server

I'm trying to show the current month in the following portion of code N'<caption>Monthy Revenue</caption> , I am not sure how to go about doing this as I am not familiar with HTML coding. I know how to obtain the current month through SQL
select datename(mm,getdate()) but how do I put that into the caption.

Below is the stored procedure

/****
Attribute:
http://www.wikihow.com/Send-a-Scheduled-HTML-Report-Directly-from-SQL-Server
SQL for Current Month select datename(mm,getdate())
****/


USE <database>
go

/****
DROP proc dbo.GetCurrentMonthyRevenue
GO
****/

create procedure dbo.GetCurrentMonthyRevenue
as
begin declare @query nvarchar(max)

set @query =
      N'<h1>Current Month Revenue</h1>' +
      N'<style type=''text/css''>'+
      N'table { border-collapse:collapse; border:1px solid #3399FF; font:10pt verdana; color:#343434; }'+
      N'table td, table th, table caption { border:1px solid #3399FF; }' +
      N'table caption { font-weight:bold; background-color:white; }'+
      N'</style>'+
      
      N'<table>' +
      N'<caption>Monthy Revenue</caption>' +
      N'<tr><th> Location </th><th> Revenue (Shipped) </th><th> Backlog (To Ship) </th><th> Total Est. Revenue
 </th></tr>' +
cast (
      (SELECT
                  td = LOCATION,'',
                  td = [REVENUE (Shipped)],'',
                  td = [BACKLOG (To Ship)],'',
                  td = [TOTAL EST. REVENUE],''
      FROM <database>.dbo.VE_BBB_Order_Summary_MTD_BYTotal
            ORDER BY [ORDER]
            for xml path ('tr'), type) as nvarchar(max)) +
            N'</table>'
select @query
end
go

Are you saying you want the current date here, "  N'<caption>Monthy Revenue</caption>' +"

as in   N'<caption>Monthy Revenue January</caption>' +


HTML does not produce the current date.  You would have to either place the date in via your sql meaning once saved, it will be static or use serverside code or javascript.
