      A very simple and enlightening example is to simply print the REQUEST
      out in an HTML page::

        <dtml-var standard_html_header>

        <dtml-var REQUEST>

        <dtml-var standard_html_footer>

         It is also a very useful debugging technique.
         The REQUEST objects __call__-method gives a suitable HTML representation string of itself.

         dtml-var does not print! it inserts a string. HTML output usually is not printed, but displayed by a browser.
