[code] Dealing with % before a snippet-placeholder

Hi all,

How would I get a percent sign in front of the substituted placeholder?
The snippet result (actually part of it) should consist of a percent sign
followed by some digits, eg. '%12'. My two attempts, which failed were:

snippets.pm = {
re1 = '%%%1(digits)',
re2 = '%%1(digits)',

And to sneak in another snippets-question:
In one of my snippets I want to have the current date as placeholder. What
is considered to be best practise to have dynamic content (I came up with
the following: date = "%1("..os.date('%Y/%m/%d')..")")

Kind Regards,
