Hi Grant,

The constants and set-up for all pages are inherited from the root 
page-template.  Maybe you are confused because a new page-template is 
not also automatically generated for each page?  This is because it's 
not necessary.

You do need to explicitly put a template on a new page, for instance if 
you want to override a setting from your root template.

BTW, to get rid of all those extra page-templates you might have created 
  trying to figure out how this works - use the List module, you can 
delete your page templates there without having to delete your pages and 
start over...  <wink>

Hope this helps.
