A comment to the paragraph below was recently added via http://www.zope.org/Documentation/Books/ZopeBook/current/AdvDTML.stx#2-17
The client object is the first object on the top of the DTML namespace
stack. What the client object is depends on whether or not you are
executing a DTML Method or a DTML Document. In our example above, this
means that the client object is named *zooName*. Which is why it
breaks. The form input that we really wanted comes from the web
request, but the client is looked at first.

The client object is topmost only as long as nothing else is pushed onto the namespace stack. The namespace
stack may grow and shrink during processing of a request.
