facelets modalPanel template question

I am hoping that this is a good place to ask this question, if not I apologize. Here is my scenario, I have a datagrid where a user can browse a list of records. I want a modalPanel to appear where the user can enter information to filter the list. I would also like to template my modalPanel pages using facelets and ui:include to make them appear. For example, say the list page is called list.xhtml, the template page is called modal_template.xhtml and the modal page is called filter.xhtml. What do I need to surround the content in the modal_template.xhtml and filter.xhtml with; should it be UI:composition in both .xhtml pages or is this not the case. I cannot find any examples on how this should be done. Could someone provide an example of what this should look like?

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
