I'm a little new to the python sde of zope and haven't done much with the other
side (dtml,etc), but am getting back into it...So here is how I think you can do
it (note: I've done this myself recently...I'm writing a product, that started
off as a collection of external methods)...

So you have a html form with a submit button. that calls a url
(http://yoursite/folder/externalmethodname)

lets say your form has two valiables it wants to pass to the method. Let's say
the variables are 'foo' and 'foo2'. 

now define you external method in a file in the <zope path>/Extension
directory..

lets call the file bar.py

okay define your method in the file

def imamethod(self,REQUEST=non):
        dosomethingwith(REQUEST['foo'])  #variable foo from the form
        dosomethingwith(REQUEST['foo2']) #other variable from the form
        REQUEST.RESPONSE.setHeader('content-type','text/html')
        REQUEST.RESPONSE.body('<HTML><BODY>Done!</BODY></HTML>')

That's it I think..

This is from memory so I am sure there are some things wrong with it. If anyone
cares to comment (i.e. the zope community) please let me know....
