My apologies. You're right, I do know better... my mistake.  Also, apologies
for the delayed reply, I've been away.

I've gone for a 'method' based on this first idea of yours.  Here is what
appears in each zclass instance.

<dtml-call privacy>
<dtml-if "available == 1">
<dtml-call "RESPONSE.redirect(restricted+'/restricted.html')">
<dtml-else>
<dtml-var standard_html_header>

<dtml-var standard_html_footer>
</dtml-if>

And here is the privacy method.

<dtml-call "REQUEST.set('available', 0)">
<dtml-if "propertyLabel(availability) == 'private'">
<dtml-call "REQUEST.set('available', 1)">
</dtml-if>

<dtml-call "REQUEST.set('dom', _.string.split(REQUEST.REMOTE_ADDR, '.'))">
<dtml-if "dom[0] == '192'">
<dtml-if "dom[1] == '168'">
<dtml-call "REQUEST.set('available', 0)">
</dtml-if>
</dtml-if>

<dtml-in PARENTS>
<dtml-let PARENT="_.getitem('sequence-item')">
<dtml-if "PARENT.hasProperty('dehs_site_root_folder')"><dtml-call
"REQUEST.set('restricted', PARENT.absolute_url())"></dtml-if>
</dtml-let>
</dtml-in>


It's not perfect (that would be when there is nothing for the user to break
in each instance), but it's better than it was and also allows me to edit
only one privacy method to change the access rights.

You've lost me a bit there.  Where am I actually checking to see if the user
has access rights?

Cheers
