f.e. '{TOP}' - for top of the page, '{HEADER}' - header of the page,
'{CONTENT}' - here will be content of the page, 
'{MENU}' - here will be menu, and so on.

(./include/PageShower/). See method makeTemplateVars().

To specify what template (skin) to use, see in file
./include/Config/Config.php variable $templateName in function
initArray(), this variable mean directory of template to use 
(relative ./admin/templates/)

See ./include/PageRepository/PageRepository.php.
There is array $this->arrayPage, which are initializated
in function initPage(). You can find out, that each page have self 
unique id (key of the array), and also contain 4 keys: 

  "pageName" => 'main',
  "pagePath" => 'cnt/main.cnt',
  "pageHtml" => '../html/main.html',
  "pageURL" => '../?pageId=main'

'pageName' - name page in the menu,

             browse the site.
'pageURL' - this url are used to go to published version in the site (from page 'pageEdit.php')

Also there is sections, array $this->arraySectionPage (initializated in
function initSectionPage()). There is two sections:
'page' - this files forms the page, f.e. 'top' - the top of the page, 
         'bottom' - the footer of the page, and so on.
'site' - this is content of the site (your pages)

Note: when you have added page to the array $this->arrayPage, you have to 
add id of the page, to section 'site', in array $this->arraySectionPage.
