No Title or Description Error

I am attempting to import a templete of my own design.  I created it using Microsoft Expressions, using inline style.

I keep getting the "You need to have either a <$title$> or <$description$> tag in your template." error, even though I have a Title.  The title is in the following format:


How does the title need to be formatted so I do not get this error and can import my template?

The <$title$> and <$description$> tags are not actually HTML tags, they are custom tags used by Campaign Monitor to allow you to edit the content of your templates. You need to have at least 1 of these tags so the content in your template can be changed for each campaign.

We have a help topic explaining how our templates work. I recommend downloading the sample template provided and having a look at how it works.

Sorry, I looked at "how our template work" but I still don't understand what specifically I need to do to eliminate the No Title of Description error.  If you could kindly let me know what I need to do to import a standard template I had created, it would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
