Right, now if I call other DTML methods from my __call__ method, can I
just call them with:

self.nav_header(self, ignored, md)?

In any case, what is self in __call__(self, ...) and what should it be
in nav_header(self, ...)?

Fair enough... I think what I meant was whatever the object that
<dtml-var "this()"> would return if that occurend in the
standard_html_header method.

myobject contains <dtml-var standard_html_header>
standard_html_header contains <dtml-var mynavigator>

__call__ is a method of the Navigator product, of which mynavigator is
an instance.

Anyway, in that __call__, self.REQUEST.PARENTS =
[zope-app,folder,object] (roughly)

By PARENTS[0-1], I meant the myobject object, itself.

Hurm, I'm finding this hard to explain clearly, let me know if I'm
getting closer :-S

Okay, I see what you mean now :-)

Nope... DT_Var.py line 258:
        def render(self, md):
...is what I think the people who mentioned it to me were talking about.

Okay, that clears it up :-)

Won't that just return x? (hmm... does aq_chain return
[child,...,parent] or [parent,...,child]?)

I think the hard part fo the problem I'm trying to solve is finding out
what x is from within the __call__ method.

Any help muchly appreciated, sorry this is takign such a long time to
sort out in my head... ;-)
