Much obliged Ivan, I have managed to do it now.  I ended up creating
my_editForm and my_edit methods within the zclass and then using the source
from a builtin edit form as my template.  One thing doesn't work now though,
and that's making the textarea wider/narrow/etc.  Obviously, this is because
I have static values put in for the dimensions of the text area, but I'm not
sure how to alter this to make it work... any pointers?
my_edit looks like this btw,

<html><body>
<dtml-call "manage_edit(data, REQUEST.title)">
<dtml-call reindex_object>
<dtml-call "RESPONSE.redirect(absolute_url()+'/my_editForm')">
</body></html>

Does this seem appropriate?

cheers

tim
