[Zope] Using ZPublisher separately

   Can anyone give me an advice on how to use ZPublisher with CGI?

   We in Interenet department of our company developed publication (conent
management) system based on Python CGIs, ZTemplates and MySQL. This is
actually second system we've developed, and it is big step forward. But
there is a problem - the system is a bit too generic. When I edit an object
through the web the handler puts all data from a form into the object as
strings, where I want integers, dates etc.

   I want to use ZPublisher's ability to convert name hints
(<input name="visible:int">) into python types. Can I do that in pure CGI
using ZPublisher? How?

   Thanks in advance.
