# Customizing Latex-Suite star environments

The documentation of Latex-Suite says I can customize the generated environment boilerplates by defining g:Tex_Env_... variables. This works for me. Nevertheless, it goes on to say that for environment names containing special characters I have to use a special syntax. An explicit example for align* is given here as

let g:Tex_Env_{'align*'} = "\\begin{align*}\<CR><++> &= <++>\<CR>\\end{align*}<++>"


But if I try this, copied verbatim, vim complains:

E461: Illegal variable name: Tex_Env_align*


I suppose the documentation contains an error, or was written for a different version of vim (I'm using 8.2.343). What syntax should I use instead?

It looks like this is not a very popular feature... Or it's mostly used with rules other than align* which cause the invalid variable name.
