This is a problem a got a lot and I never able to seem to solve it.
I want save or create a object to a specific folder or other folderish
object,          I ask the user for the id of that folder or folderish
object                 I store the id name in a variable 'name'

the problem is I know the type of the folder or folderish object but
'name' is a str object and I can't use command like name.manage_addFile().
The server just tells me that name is a str which contains no function

I always end up doing a
<dtml-in "objectValues(['Folder'])">
    <dtml-if "getId() == name">
        do something....

Please take the advice and learn Python. Such logic should be implemented
in Python and *not* in DTML. DTML/ZPT are for presentation *only*, not for
implementing business logic.
