{{Example table with computations, with optional substitution| date = July 2006 | arpop = 71891 | arar = 193 | nlpop = 16491461 | nlar = 41526 | napop = 221736 | naar = 960 }}

gives:

component population
(July 2006 est.)
area
(km²)
pop. dens.
(per km²)
currency
Aruba 71,891 193 372 Aruban Florin
Netherlands 16,491,461 41,526 397 euro
Netherlands Antilles 221,736 960 231 Netherlands Antilles Gulden
total 16,785,088 42,679 393

{{subst:Example table with computations, with optional substitution| date = July 2006 | arpop = 71891 | arar = 193 | nlpop = 16491461 | nlar = 41526 | napop = 221736 | naar = 960 }}

applies multilevel substitution; the resulting wikitext (see the edit window) is rendered the same:

component population
(July 2006 est.)
area
(km²)
pop. dens.
(per km²)
currency
Aruba 71,891 193 372 Aruban Florin
Netherlands 16,491,461 41,526 397 euro
Netherlands Antilles 221,736 960 231 Netherlands Antilles Gulden

An alternative way of full recursive substitution is with Special:ExpandTemplates. With that method the template code does not need the codes {{{|safesubst:}}}.
