New submission from Craig McQueen <python at craig.mcqueen.id.au>:

I stumbled across "Template Strings" of PEP 292 by accident recently. I'd never heard of it before.

I'm familiar with the "string interpolation" aka "String Formatting Operations", and I know to find that in the docs under "Standard Types", i.e.
http://docs.python.org/library/stdtypes.html#string-formatting-operations
http://docs.python.org/py3k/library/stdtypes.html#old-string-formatting-operations

It would be good for that documentation to mention "Template Strings", and include a cross-reference to the docs for it, since it was created as an alternative string formatting. I.e. cross-reference to
http://docs.python.org/library/string.html#template-strings
http://docs.python.org/py3k/library/string.html#template-strings
