Hi Geoff,

Try using _.getitem(), as in:
<dtml-let myObject="_.getitem(myId)">
... <dtml-call myObject.foo> ...
</dtml-let>
or probably:
<dtml-let myObject="_.getitem(REQUEST['myId'])">

If you aren't sure of the existance of the object, wrap the above in:
<dtml-if "_.hasattr(this(), REQUEST['myId'])">
</dtml-if>

Ivan
