      Property Sheets have two uses.  As you've seen with this example,
      they are a tool for organizing related sets of properties about your
      objects, second to that, they are used to generate HTML forms and
      actions to edit those set of properties.  The HTML edit forms are
      generated automatically for you, you only need to associate a view
      with a Property Sheet to see the sheet's edit form.  For example,
      return to the ZooExhibit ZClass and click on the *Views* tab and
      create a new view with the name *Edit* and associate it with the
      method *propertysheets/ExhibitProperties/manage_edit*.

         in the Methods list.
