I have done as you say and get this error:
  KeyError: '$var' 
  Here are the code lines I added into the table:
  <td><tal:content metal:use-macro="here/$var/macros/author">author</tal:content></td>
<td><tal:content metal:use-macro="here/$var/macros/content">content</tal:content></td>

You might try something like "here/?var/...".

"?var" reads the contents of the variable "var" and inserts this content
into the path expression.

Note that the value must be a string and that embedded '/' are *not*
treated as path separators.
