I was inserting the "missing=&nbsp;" statement into the <dtml-var sn> key.
In fact, I don't get the key error anymore. But unfortunately, I don't get 
the values of the sn attribute either.
The method just returns me an empty line for every LDAP entry.
How can I access the LDAP attributes?

any ideas?

Thanks a lot.
