Templates used to illustrate (and usually specially format) examples of wiki syntax without having to "protect" the text with <nowiki> tags.

For example, the template reference {{stub}}, which may be generated using:

<tt><nowiki>{{stub}}</nowiki></tt>

can be obtained more efficiently by using Template:T, as follows:

{{t|stub}}

Generally this kind of thing is only useful in templates themselves and/or template documentation, or on other "help" pages explaining wiki syntax. Therefore, as a general rule, these templates should not be used in articles.
