I downloaded a template, but when I preview it there is all this in it:
<$title link='true' default='Enter your title'$>
" alt="Inline Image" width="144" height="144" align="right" /> <$description default='
Enter your description
What's that all about?
Are you using the campaign-monitor-tags template or the campaign-monitor-editor template? And are you importing to the template area or importing as a completed campaign? It sounds like you might be using the files meant for use with the editor but importing as a completed campaign instead, so that the editor tags show.
