You shouldn't have to.
If Zope's DateTime has the today method, you culd do:
<dtml-in "Catalog(meta_type='object_type')">
  <dtml-if "_.DateTime.today < bobobase_modification_time">
    &dtml-title; was modified today.
  </dtml-if>
</dtml-in>

hmmm ... lemme see if it does ... nope.
Well, it works in python.
The other day (at a machine I don't have access too right now) I managed
to get mxDateTime in the namespace. If it would help, I'll try to post
what I did to get it done.


In the meantime, if you have mxDateTime installed, you should be able to
have an external method called "Today", that returns DateTime.today, and
compare as thus:

<code-untested>
-------------------------------------------------
<dtml-in "Catalog(meta_type='object_type')">
  <dtml-if "Today < bobobase_modification_time">
    &dtml-title; was modified today.
  </dtml-if>
</dtml-in>
-------------------------------------------------
</code-untested>
