You are correct, you're ZClass is not rendering the dtml and it wont. The
easiest way I found is simply not to try and find another solution. I came
across the same problem a while ago when I was just starting out with Zope.

I have solved the problem now, its written in python and derives from
DTMLDocument and its based on the ZWiki code which accomplishes rendering
quite well.
