What exactly should I write? Currently my constructor method contains
the following (mk_dtml_document is my custom class which subclasses DTML
Document, Extra is the name of my custom propertysheet):
<dtml-comment> How can I change original title? </dtml-comment>
On which object (which property sheet) should I call
manage_editProperties to change document title?

So it is impossible to use original DTML Document property screen? I

Not exactly. I would like to have bodies of my DTML Documents and my
custom class (which does not subclass DTML Document) .body property
contents to be indexed with _the same_ full text index.
I tried defining method PrincipiaSearchSource in my custom class but it
did not helped (ZCatalog did not indexed my objects in PrincipiaSearch
index - according to its status screen).

Yes I know. In fact I ask 'what can I do to parse DTML in a method of
object which does not subclass DTML Document?'

And that 'somehow' is what I am asking for.

The archives are not searchable :-(
I will try downloading them but if anyone has this article handy, I'd be
