This is not be the real thing on the site. It is just
what i develop and see. The site is not up yet and the
interface and the credentials are not set. I just have
the spefific interface now for
trying-testing-learning.
I can see your point and agree 100%

I have allready used that and i am trying what i wrote
just for learning some python and do some custom
things.
I am sure you are right and sooner or later i will
also prefer what you suggest (when i know more about
what zopes transactions etc. are about) after reading
some more on the Zope book.

I knew that it should be some other way that the
correct syntax should be used. i had wrote 
<dtml-in expr="TestODBCEM('<dtml-var
sysDSN>','<dtml-var usr>', '<dtml-var mypass>',
'<dtml-var sSQL>')">
witch was realy wrong and maybe stupid, but i'm sure
i'll get better soon with that kind of community and
documentation. I am realy sory if i ask some stupid
questions but as i told you i will soon get better.
Thank you  very much for both DTML and Python.
