I hope this is not a FAQ, but I looked for some info to no avail.
And my answer to this FAQ, as always, is "use ZPT".
If I call a DTML-Method from an other Method (e.g. <dtml-var someDTML>),
HTML entities are not converted.
This is calling and rendering whatever someDTML is...
However if I call it from python (e.g. <dtml-var "somePath.someDTML">
the entities are html_quoted.
This is likely inserting a python repr of whatever somePath.someDTML
This changed with Zope 2.7.x (?). Before that DTMLMethods were not
quoted when called from python.
Where are you calling one from python?
I know the easy workaround is to dtml-with to the namespace of the
object and call it the zope-way.
I have a customer with several large applications which run on an old
Zope only for the described reason. The applications relay heavily on
Changing the old code would be an enormous effort.
...but likely worth it in the long run ;-)
