The <dtml-in> is not right. Use dtml-in if you want to iterate over
lists. So in your case you should try:

<dtml-if "money=='1000'">
    This is not much!
<dtml-if "money=='5000'">
    This is ok!
<dtml-if "money=='10000'">
    This is very much!

(or use <dtml-elif> in this case)

This now makes a string compare as usually form parameters will be passed
as strings if you don't tell Zope to do it different. In order to e.g. let
it pass integers, you might try in the form:

<select name="money:int">

Then you can say <dtml-if "money==1000">, etc.
