Yes. Re-read the next part of Nikitas Answer:

This means that the {something} type of things are processed by a 
template application on the web server; they will typically be replaced 
by the appropriate HTML output, before the code is sent to the client 
(your browser). Check the source code in the browser to verify this. 
There is no standard for server-side template systems; HTML covers the 
client side.
