Mike (and Stafan) have it right.

Mike, it's basically saying that to figure out how to encoding  
things, you'll need to consider the way that the template is intended  
to be used -- so you'll need to follow its instructions. Considering  
that you'll already be doing so for other reasons (e.g., to figure  
out what to put in each variable, semantic-wise as well as for any  
variable-specific syntactic considerations), it's not too onerous.
