   Of course, the obvious problem was that I was calling the page_html
incorrectly. I remember years ago when I was using DTML under Bobo that I
ran into this exact same problem, and Jim Fulton pointed out the error of
my ways. Of course, it's all still black magic, and Jim's elsewhere, so I
hadda delve into the DocumentTemplate source to find the solution myself.
Four head-hurting hours later, the solution is:

    <dtml-var "page_html(REQUEST)">

   And all is made better.
