    Before Zope 2.3, DTML Methods were the only way to write scripts in
    Zope with your web browser.  While DTML is useful for very simple
    scripts and for presenting information with templates, this approach
    had a number of limitations because DTML isn't as flexible as other
    programming languages.

       DTML sure is flexible enuff to write even large scripts, but it was not meant for that, its clumsy and not
       elegant and meanwhile there are better ways.
