What is a template?

We will be creating a template today, so this will be good background information for y’all.

A template is a document pattern or part of a document that you keep stored to make new documents. They can define the layout, fonts, margins, and other features of a document. Word processing, desktop publishing, and HTML editing programs sometimes call these “style sheets”. You might also hear templates called “stationary”, like in Outlook Express.

Whatever you call ’em, they sure can make life easier.
