Funny. I think he gave a good description of the problem. I've 
fallen into this trap too, when I started using Zope. I too consider 
the behaviour somewhat odd, and don't like the current state of 
affairs, where fiddling around with various partially implemented 
syntactic constructs gives quicker results than searching the 
documentation, or having a simple mental model of how it "is 
assumed to work".

Olivers mental model of how the evaluation of a dtml constructs 
obviously doesn't give him the right clues. IMHO, this isn't Olivers 
fault, but an indication that there is something wrong with dtml.

Btw, I believe that <dtml-var "render(mydoc)"> is the easiest way 
to express what he wants. But what do I know. :-}
