Putting current date into a title item's default text field?

I want to put the curerrent date in an h2 in the header of my template, but can't get this code to work:

<h2><$title link='false' default='<$currentdayname$> <$currentyear$>'$></h2>

It is being displayed in the editor like this:

Title   2008'$>

Any ideas?

Many thanks,
