    A simple example of using DTML Methods is to create a DTML Method in
    the root folder called *objectList*::

      <dtml-var standard_html_header>

        <dtml-in objectValues>
          <li><dtml-var getId></li>

      <dtml-var standard_html_footer>

       DTML Methods are much more handy than DTML Documents, which sometimes behave folderishly or in similarly
       unexpected ways

       I am still confused with DTML document and DTML method. What is the main difference?

       There is a section which compares DTML documents/methods further down.

       Again a bad example. Better use a breadcrumbs method.
       Something having both a *_header and *_footer i would use as DTML Document. 

       From which templates should this be called? 
       To which objects should this method apply?
       Is this an index_html?

       A DTML Method doesnt have properties (like title), but acquires them from caller.
