    This is basically what you might expect. Zope inserts a header, a
    footer, and a title into the web page. DTML gets the values for these
    variables from a number of different places. First, the *var* tag tries
    to find a variable in the current object. Then it looks in the current
    object's containers. Then it looks in the web request (forms and
    cookies). If Zope cannot find a variable then it raises an exception,
    and it stops executing the DTML.

       "current object's containers" what are containers? are you saying the current file's parent folder? or the
       sibling folders?

       the current object's folder, then in turn *its* folder, then its folder, etc.

       The preceding search order is so important I think it should have its own heading.
