[Zope] How does DTML handle return variables from Python

I sorted of asked this question before but I am still hitting a wall. I am
using this python code:

context, container, script, traverse_subpath 
part_num = st1 + sub_type2
return part_num

But when "part_num" is returned it is blank. I test the script and
"part_num" has a return value.

The DTML doc is as follows:

<form name="form1" method="post" action="create_part_num">
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">
<p>Your here!!<dtml-var st1><dtml-var sub_type2><dtml-var part_num> pn</p>
Your here!!<dtml-var st1><dtml-var sub_type2><dtml-var part_num> pn
<dtml-var expr="concat_sub_types_to_part_num(st1,sub_type2)">

**<dtml-var part_num>pn
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">


To make sure I have a value for part_num on the previous dtml doc I hard
coded "zz" into the variable. Also, I wanted to see it on the next dtml doc
called. So I try to figure this out between network problems. Any help would
be appreciated, thanks.

I am a networking guy who they asked to web program. You know they asked for
volunteers and everyone step back but me.
