A bit of shell might accelerate (could be AppleScript can do it also):

	while [ $i -le 25 ]; do
	    while [ $j -le 3 ]; do
	        cat template.tex | sed -e s/i-j/${i}-${j}/g -e s/ij/${i}${j}/ 
g > ${i}.tex
	        j=`expr $j + 1`
	    i=`expr $i + 1`

The inner loop increments j from 1 to 3 while i is constant from the  
outer loop. It also changes certain strings in the LaTeX template  
file to numerical values. This is then saved in ${i}.tex -- since I  
don't understand what the file is finally going to contain, the first  
contents will be overwritten twice. Some change is needed here! But  
this needs understanding the case ...

When the inner loop has finished i is incremented by 1 and j reset to  
1. The inner loop can start again with a new value for i ...
