don't mix up templates and snippets. Only if one inserts it as "Insert  
as Snippet" the TABs are working, a template inserts everything only  
as plain text.

But Hendrik Nyh found a nice solution: a "Snipplate" bundle

Install that bundles

and open it with the bundle editor to modify/copy/... it.

An other approach is to provide a NIB dialog for entering initial  
data. This is useful for complex templates.
