A couple days ago, I sent a message proposing that creating a
<dtml-expr> tag could eliminate a lot of the confusion that new Zope users
face. It seems that almost every new Zope user gets hung up on the
difference between <dtml-var foo> and <dtml-var "foo">. It just now occurred
to me that creating <dtml-expr "foo"> does not solve the problem, because
there are still <dtml-if "foo"> and <dtml-in "foo">.

    While I am certainly in favor of keeping expressions in DTML, it looks
like <dtml-expr> is not a good way to eliminate the confusion for new users.
Perhaps the best thing is to just make sure that the introductory docs cover
that topic very well.
