Warin -
I read through the documentation for Templates and the way it's used in
Mediawiki applications like our Wiki is to define a piece of text, with or
without photos, etc., as a reusable fragment that can be inserted in any
page and if the original, the "template", is edited the changes propagate
to all instances of the template in as many places as it appears. It's sort
of like what used to be known as "boilerplate" in word-processors except
its content is dynamic.

Thanks for your clarification though. It motivated me to learn a bit more
about the Wiki s/w I constantly complain about. LOL
