      Now, you need to incorporate this method into the site. Let's put
      a reference to it in the *standard_html_header* object so that the
      navigation system is available on every page of the site.  Your
      *standard_html_header* could look like this::

        <head><title><dtml-var title></title></head>
        <dtml-var navigation>

         <dtml-var navigation>
         i cant get this code to work, should it be <dtml-var index_html>?

         i put it into the index_html file just below the standard header call and it finally worked.

         standard_html_header is a dtml method. If you copy standard_html_header from the root folder into your
         ZopeZoo folder and modify it, it will work.
         ...Therefore I assume that if you created it as a dtml method (instead of a page template as I initially did)
         that it would work properly.

         Yes, it's not stated explicitly, but you need to make this a DTML method.
