Thanks for your response.  I tried your methods on a normal folder that
contains some other folders, dtmldocuments, and images, but it failed on the
<dtml-let sheet=sequence-item> which followed the  <dtml-in
"propertysheets.items()">.

If I used <dtml-let sheet=sequence-key> instead, then I always got back only
two strings, "default" and "webdav".  So I guess it is picking something else
up.  Any ideas?  Perhaps I should be using ZClasses, but I just wanted to
have what I thought would be the simple ability to loop through properties of
an object without knowing what they were before.

thanks
