A comment to the paragraph below was recently added via http://www.zope.org/Documentation/Books/ZopeBook/current/AdvDTML.stx#2-37


    The *getitem* function takes the name to look up as its first
    argument. Now, the DTML Method will correctly display the sum of the
    first three integers.  The *getitem* method takes an optional second
    argument which specifies whether or not to render the variable. Recall
    that rendering a DTML variable means turning it into a string. By
    default the *getitem* function does not render a variable.

       It's not the sum but rather the square of the first three integers.
