[Mediawiki-l] Templates

I'm having a little problem with templates (the {{name}} things). I'm using
1.2.6 on Windows. I made {{europe}} on a page, then made Template:europe (I
copied straight from the source of
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Europe ). When i view the
template-page, it gives me the list, so that works. When i return to my
original page which should include the template, i see the text {{europe}},
not [[Template:europe]] like http://meta.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template
suggests when the template page doesn't exist, or the list of countries.
Then i grepped the source: grep -r "{{" *.php, this found absolutely
nothing. Is this because the metawiki-page is out of date, too recent or
wrong? Am i using an old version?

Thanks for reading,
