[Cartoweb-users] Troubles using Smarty

I'm trying to modify layout of CW3Demo project. I never used Smarty and I 
have problems using (configuring?) it..

These are the steps I followed:

1) Downloaded Smarty 2.6.11.
2) Followed instructions for Windows installation 
(http://news.php.net/php.smarty.dev/2703 )
3) Tested the sample code of that page. It works.
4) Modified (just changed a static string) in 
C:/wamp/www/cartoweb3/projects/demoCW3/templates/cartoclient.tpl (is this a 
right file?)
5) Created index.php with the following code:

// load Smarty library
$smarty = new Smarty;
$smarty->template_dir = 'C:/wamp/www/cartoweb3/projects/demoCW3/templates';
$smarty->config_dir = 'C:\wamp\www\smarty\configs';
$smarty->cache_dir = 'C:\wamp\smarty\cache';
$smarty->compile_dir = 'C:\wamp\www\cartoweb3\templates_c';

//$smarty->assign('name','fish boy!');

6) When I execute index.php the error it gives me is:

Fatal error: Smarty error: [in cartoclient.tpl line 7]: syntax error: 
unrecognized tag 'r' (Smarty_Compiler.class.php, line 580) in 
c:\wamp\smarty\libs\Smarty.class.php on line 1095

If I understood how this tool works, when I execute this index.php file, 
Smarty trasforms tpl in php file e saves it in 
C:\wamp\www\cartoweb3\templates_c (compile_dir).
So the Cartoweb demo would be updated. Is this correct?

Any help appreciated
