Correct way to fill out a template for a magazine publisher?

A technical question that's probably easy-peasy for those in the know: I have to use a template to send Word documents to a magazine publisher for a publication I'm working on. Only problem is, I'm not 100% sure of the correct format.

So let's say the template looks like this:
MagTitle Chapeau The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
MagTitle Heading Quick brown fox!
MagTitle Lead. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
MagTitle Credits by the Quick Brown Fox
So should the filled-out template then look like this - with "MagTitle Chapeau" and so on left IN the document?
MagTitle Chapeau This would be the chapeau
MagTitle Heading A great heading!
MagTitle Lead. If you want to know about this, you should read this article!

I'm 99% sure I've got it right, but I guess I want to be 100% and Google hasn't been a lot of help. It's been a while since I've worked on a mag and I'm loath to display my ignorance to the client unless absolutely necessary.
Oh, and thanks!
