    When a DTML Document or DTML Method is executed, Zope creates a
    DTML namespace to resolve DTML variable names. It's important to
    understand the workings of the DTML namespace so that you can
    accurately predict how Zope will locate variables. Some of the
    trickiest problems you will run into with DTML can be resolved by
    understanding the DTML namespace.

       /is executed/called for execution/
       The namespace is constructed upon the *event* of a call; execution itself is a *sequence of events* in time*.
