Usage Explanation
{{:xyz}} A bare colon is not a template modifier, it's the prefix for the main namespace. Test e.g. article {{:UTC}} vs. template {{UTC}}.
Using this syntax you include the text of the main namespace article xyz in another article.
{{int:xyz}} Same as {{MediaWiki:xyz}}, except standard message translation is applied depending on subpages and content/user/uselang language. Another difference is: this doesn't appear under "Templates used on the current version of this page:". Rendered as <xyz> if MediaWiki:xyz doesn't exist. See also Help:System message.
{{msg:xyz}} Even if there is a magic word named "xyz", use template:xyz unless the template doesn't exist (equivalent to {{template:xyz}}). Normally, magic words have priority when there is a conflict.
{{msgnw:xyz}} The unevaluated wikitext is rendered. See msgnw.
{{raw:xyz}} [MW1.6+] Equivalent to {{msg:xyz}} above[1].
{{subst:xyz}} In the wikitext, the tag is substituted by the content (single-level evaluation only), see Help:Substitution.
