A comment to the paragraph below was recently added via http://www.zope.org/Documentation/Books/ZopeBook/current/AdvZPT.stx#4-161


        When Zope publishes a DTML object through the web, it
        passes the context of the object as the client, and the
        REQUEST as the mapping.  When one DTML object calls another,
        it passes its own namespace as the mapping, and no client.

           Do you mean, these are the default parameters?
           lists for
           DTML Document: __call__(client=None, REQUEST={}, RESPONSE=None, **kw)
           DTML Method:   __call__(client=None, REQUEST={},                **kw)

           what abt RESPONSE? 
           also AppendixB says name lookup order is 1:**kw, 2:client, 3:mapping
           (section "DTML Namespaces") says nothing about **kw.
