Okay, you may be right here. But when do you really want that?

  foo ...
  <title>Hello World!</title>
  bar ...

okay, I see. The plain text was a bad example I guess. here a better one?

   <category> blah</category>

You could use two for loops. or even better, put the title inside the project

<project title="Hello">

So you can call it <dtml-var title> without any problem. I just noticed that I
went more and more away from using objectValues. :)

I guess I need to think more about the issue too.

BTW, I just strated college again and had to rebuild my box, sol I am not srtuo
in school completely yet to receive Zope mail. After this weekend I should be
able to answer to the mail more quickly. :)
