I can never beat the online documentation:

http://www.python.org/doc, click 'Module index', click 'strings'.

I don't know where the string template thingies are described, but it
has to be there somewhere.

Same:

http://www.python.org/ look in the 'Documentation links', in particular
the 'introductions to python'. There is a section of links to convince
those that control what we do (they think :-) ).


[ python documentation is awesome, very complete and very good. Browse
  the website for answers to just about any question.
