From your description is looked like you were merging the properties
of two objects into one report, which (IMO) is beyond my personal
dander-level for dtml. dtml's simplicity comes from only having one
namespace, which is only really enough for manipulating one object at
a time.

(Ive looked back on your original post and cant quite match up the
code to your explanation, so my comments may be unjustified here.
"blame dtml" has become an automatic reaction, partly because I had
been burned many times by problems similar to what you describe)

Mmmm, too easy.
