MediaWiki knows some defined variables which can be used in texts. They are rendered differently depending on the time, the site and the page. Their syntax is similar to templates. If you want a page to show always the current time, you use {{CURRENTTIME}}. To distinguish variables from templates, most variables are capitalized.
