To summarize, the only PI you need to know about for creating templates in XMetaL is “xm-replace_text” as Derek described it below.  You can include as many of these in your template as you need, anywhere content is allowed.  Only the name “xm-replace_text” is required; the rest can be whatever you wish, and will form the prompt that is displayed when the user opens the template.

(By the way, when you open in XMetaL Author an XMetaL Reviewer document with embedded comments, the Reviewer PIs Derek mentioned are actually in there, but we prevent you from ever seeing them by stripping them out if you switch to Plain Text View.)
