Fragment Description:

Go html/template.
Package template (html/template) implements data-driven templates for generating HTML output safe against code injection.
It provides the same interface as package text/template and should be used instead of text/template whenever the output is HTML.
Here the template 'page' is in a variable, usually it is written in a file.
And in that case, the content of the file is read and cached...
in a variable :) Execute this program and then try:
'curl -i localhost:8082/' (inspired by Alex Edwards snippets.
