You need to put all $-symbols at the start, and $1 is something
totally different from $0. No harm intended, but: You should read the
HTML documentation, please. You won't come very far without reading it
at least once.

Well, you don't need to make a subpatch with [pd ...] to use $0, you
can use it anywhere, and it will be local inside that file i.e. that
abstraction, but it will still reach any subpatches inside that file.

Better read that docs...
