Yikes, its __call__ that gets rendered not __str__. 

About your question... you still want to call __call__ :)
ala dtml_code_to_be_rendered() from within python. if you're accessing
any other zope elements that are not native to it(likely) you will need
to pass in the proper namespace and methods. Something along the lines 
dtcbr(client, namespace, request, response, *). you can safely leave
most of these blank. the keys ones in this context are probably
namespace and client. 

i played around with this and got rendering simple pages but nothing
with other zope objects.

take a look at the source for more inspiration.


and HTML class.

Hope that helps
