Ah you are right. Just occured to me. That is kind of a pain in
DTML, but I've learned how to deal with it. Makes sense.
If I already have an object, say from a form submitted, in the REQUEST
namespace, and I then retrieve data from sql and a column has the same
name, I will have an issue. Which one is going to display in my var?
I deal with this particular issue by changing my zsql method to return
the column name differently, but there are other times when this may
arise and it is a problem. And this causes you to have to do a bunch
of messy dtml-call REQUEST.set's to set your vars correctly.
I have learned how to deal with these things, but you are right, this
is a problem with DTML and I can see how this exact issue helps make
DTML messy and a little confusing. Great point. Thanks.
