This is quite a thorny FAQ. The root of it is the binding of methods to
objects/namespaces in DTML, which has had lots of press on

The short version is:

-if that code is in a method, it is executed on the method's container
(actualyl acquisition context, but don't worry abotu that too much ;-)
-if the code was in a documents, it is executed on that document. Since
documents can't really have things attached to them that would be
returned by objectValues, you usually get an empty list back :-)
