Nope, use ZopePageTemplates instead. DTML is useful for non-html
templating (css, Javascript, SQL etc), but it's an horror when it comes
to html IMHO.

You could get away with Python scripts, but Zope product(s) might be
your best bet. Note that a single Zope Product can be composed of
multiple classes, external methods, templates etc...

Why ? This goes into the product too. Understand that a Zope product is
not restricted to a single class, and that not all classes in a Zope
product needs to be persistant or whatsoever.
