I have a user ID, how do I get information about the user?

Well, in Smarty templates, using the {displayname} tag works a treat. For example, I have a user ID and I want their real name:

<?php
The user name is 
{displayname user_id=$gBitUser->getUserId()}
?>


See Smarty Functions for more short-cut functions.
