[Zope-DB] sqlvar tag for text

Sorry that some of you will get this twice (I did reply to instead of reply
to all)

I can provide several

guestbooks, bulletin boards, application forms, news systems

Anything which requires you to use more than 1 line of text (and keep
formatting in tact).

As a reply to the next email this isn't an entirely new tag, its a minor
extension on an existing tag. The current tag (using string type) strips all
formatting (and doesn't save \n etc). The standard dtml-var tag doesn't
handle " and ' correctly since in an sql method you need to use
'<dtml-sqlvar foo>' for text.

As a reply to Jim Penney:
Doesn't help in cases where I want to keep " instead of '
