    DTML expressions allow you to be more explicit about how to find and
    call variables. Expressions are tag attributes that contain snippets of
    code in the Python language. For example, instead of letting DTML find
    and call *getHippo*, we can use an expression to explicitly pass

      <dtml-var expr="getHippo('with a large net')">

       Hm. a "DTML expression" is an expr inside a dtml-tag, not one made out of dtml-tags.
