    Like the *if* tag, calling the *unless* tag by name does existence
    checking, so::

      <dtml-unless the_easter_bunny>
        The Easter Bunny does not exist or is not true.

       This comes nice to provide the REQUEST with default variables
       (if they were not set in a previous html form) like

       <dtml-unless "REQUEST.has_key('the_easter_bunny')">
         <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('the_easter_bunny', 0)">
