How to display field value in the web version of my campaign

When you use merge tags in your campaigns, the value for every merge tag will differ for each subscriber. However, in the web version of your campaign, merge tags will be replaced with generic placeholders – for example, {{PetName}} will be displayed as <<Pet Name>>.

Using the PetName field as an example, if my subscriber's PetName value is Bao, this is how it'll display in their inbox:
