typeerror applying precompiled handlebars templates with a context


typeerror applying precompiled handlebars templates with a context  using -'javascript,node.js,handlebars.js'

Pardon the noob question but I simply can't get precompiled Handlebars templates to do anything but barf out


  TypeError: 'undefined' is not a function (evaluating 'templateSpec.call(container, Handlebars, context, options.helpers, options.partials, options.data)')


each time I apply a context to a (precompiled) template.

Given the following files and contents:


hello.handlebars: <p>Hello, {{name}}</p>
templates.js: the result of compiling hello.handlebars via handlebars hello.handlebars -f templates.js
index.html: includes Handlebars RC1 runtime in the head and this for the body:

<body id="body">
  <script src="templates.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
    var compiledTemplate = Handlebars.templates['hello'];
    var html = compiledTemplate({ name: 'World' });
    document.getElementById('body').innerHTML = html;
  </script>
</body>



Calling compiledTemplate() throws that error above no matter what I do--yet I'm able to get client-side templates to compile and display just fine. All the walkthroughs and tutorials I've seen skip through this like its obvious so I must be missing something silly. Any ideas?
