      These converters all work in more or less the same way to coerce a
      string form variable into a specific type. You may recognize these
      converters from Chapter 3, "Using Basic Zope Objects",  where we
      discussed properties. These converters are used by Zope's property
      facility to convert properties to the right type.

         no, a string form variable, that is, a form variable which is a string

         "string from variable" makes no sense at all, what, we're going to convert a string from a variable to an
         integer? get a clue
