are you talking about a ZOPE object? remember if you are a DTML Method your
'meta_type' will return the container object (it doenst have its own

you could try
<dtml-with object>
  <dtml-var meta_type>

would you please elaborate.... what are you trying to determine the type of?

I agree.  _[_['blah']] is probably the nastiest thing I've ever seen.  and
then someone will start adding lambdas to it and it will be all crap to
maintain from there... :(  eventually the namespace will be explained and
documented better, this is mainly a python/ZOPE framework idea that needs to
be experienced.  I still dont 100% get it.  I can usually make things work,
but sometimes I just dont quite 'get it'.

be abit more specific, you using python methods,. external methods, or
trying to do this from within DTML?
