[ZDP] BackTalk to Document The Zope Book (2.5 Edition)/Dynamic Content with DTML

A comment to the paragraph below was recently added via http://www.zope.org/Documentation/Books/ZopeBook/current/DTML.stx#2-32
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.

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