Templates limitation, no recursion

Hi Gale,

I just realised another limitation of the templates mechanism: You can not invoke a template from the string you send to another template. Specifically, I tried to format an external link in an intro, like this:


That fails, as the interpreter is not recursive on this level, and thus is not able to nest template invocations like this. (That is also expressly stated on the Wiki template editing help page , section FAQ.)

The implication is that intros (and of course any use of a template) can only contain "plain text", or text formatted with other wiki or html functions. Pity.
