{{Tl}} and {{Tl2}}

are simple w:macro|macro]] m:Help:template|templates]] used to display a template name as a link. Tl stands for Template link. 
Tl2 differs in that it displays an arguably clearer result like {{Tlx}}, and also like takes the named parameters 'SISTER=xx' and 'LANG=ll', so that it may also be used to list and link to templates on other English and non-English language sister projects.
{{Tlx}} displays with the same enhanced presentation, and also expands several 'placeholder' parameters to generate a sample template call.


 {{Tl|template name to display}}
 {{Tl2|template name to display}} -- local link, just like Tl.
 {{Tl2|SISTER=V:|template name to display}} -- displays a template on Wikiversity
 {{Tl2|LANG=fr.|SISTER=wikisource|template name to display}} -- displays a template
                       on the French Wikisource sister project.
