Looking for C++ Templates Tutorial

I lead a daily seminar at work and am looking for a tutorial covering C++ templates.

The attendees range in skill level from junior to quite senior.  All have good grounding in C++ as an OO language and are ready start with template functions and classes.  I want to cover the basics before getting into subjects like template metaprogramming.

What tutorial suggestions have you?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This one is basic, but very good :


A bit more advanced topics can be found here for example :

Avery nice one is http://www.codeproject.com/KB/cpp/templates_part1.aspx ("A Beginners guide to Templates - Part 1") and the ollowup at http://www.codeproject.com/KB/cpp/templates_part2.aspx ("A Beginners guide to Templates - Part 1"). Also from that size: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/cpp/template_hints.aspx ("Special notes for writing C++ templates"). A pretty good FAQ to help clear things up: http://www.comeaucomputing.com/techtalk/templates/ ("Tech Talk About C++ Templates - Comeau C++ Template FAQ").
