An administrator can select a template web from the "based on web" picklist when creating a new web in the ManagingWebs topic. Template webs are otherwise invisible.
The _default web template contains the following topics:
WebHome, WebAtom, WebChanges, WebCreateNewTopic, WebIndex, WebLeftBar, WebNotify, WebPreferences, WebRss, WebSearch, WebSearchAdvanced, WebStatistics, WebTopicList and WebTopMenu.
