It wraps the part of the page to build as static. In your case, I expect it
will be the entire page. As an example, it is used in the foundation demo
around the left navigation, within the category_vertical component.

In the example above, if you put exactly that code in your page, you would
expect the enclosed part:

  Built at [time]%c[/time].

to be interpolated and then cached. You should see the date/time stays the
same on subsequent page views as that part is then cached.
