It seems that my welcome message that is being sent out when someone subscribes is doing so without the variables being replaced with, well, the variable!!!!

See this copy and paste of a portion of my welcome message  -------

  Welcome to the %(real_name)s@%(host_name)s mailing list! %(welcome)s

  Thank you.

------  And so on.

Can anyone help me figure out why?  I am possitive I have the code for them written correctly.  But I did add to it as you can see under "Edit the public HTML pages and text files".

Thanks for any input.
