[ZDP] BackTalk to Document The Zope Book (2.5 Edition)/Variables and Advanced DTML

A comment to the paragraph below was recently added via http://zope.org/Documentation/Books/ZopeBook/current/AdvDTML.stx#1-5
But unfortunately, this is one of those instances where DTML will not do
what you mean, because the name of the DTML Document that contains this
DTML is also named *zooName*, and it doesn't use the variable out of the
request, it uses itself, which causes it call itself and call itself, ad
infinitum, until you get an "excessive recursion" error. So instead of
doing what you really meant, you got an error. This is what confuses
beginners. In the next couple sections, we'll show you how to fix this
example to do what you mean.

"causes it call" should be "causes it to call"
"next couple sections" should be "next couple of sections"
Hope that helps.
