Right, Phil.  Mental lapse on my part.

The nested dtml-ins will be very inefficient because the select on the
whole of table2 in the inner one will be repeated once for each record in
table1.  I was thinking it would only get executed once.

The first solution I offered is better especially if table2 is indexed on
id, but you're still executing a repeated query on table2.

<dtml-in selectFromTable1>
  <dtml-in expr="selectFromTable2(id=_['id'])">
     ....display record....
  </dtml-in>
</dtml-in>
