What's the problem with simply doing this?  Is Col3 so enormous that
you're running into environment variable limits?  Or are you worried
about performance?

If it's performance, "profile, don't speculate!"  It would be very
interesting to see some test results showing just how much it costs to
have some enormous variables in the environment.

Finally, if I've understood correctly what you're trying to achieve,
there is a workaround, although it's rather ugly.

    eval 'Col3=() sed s/__SPECIAL_TAG__/'^$Col3^'/ page_template.html'
