Creating a hybrid cell

I am doing a calculation. Let us say that the result of the calculation is in variable X1 (which was extracted from a list using [[]] type constructs - unimportant, but it is a result). I want to add text cells later in the notebook that refer to the value of X1 (not the string "X1"). I have tried doing this with the use of inline cells crtl + ( and ctrl + ), but when I evaluate the notebook, I just get something like : "We calculated X1 earlier to be X1." instead of the expected "We calculated X1 earlier to be <<value of X1>>". I am trying to use Mathematica as a tool to create a handout for a class. I am not a Mathematica newbie, though I am new to using it for any purpose other than as a calculation program. Any ideas if this is possible ?
