[Zope] creating objects in dtml?

I have a python class which I've set up as a zope product and which shows up
Now, products installed this way don't show up on menus, so I've more or less
followed the instructions and created a product with a zclass which
subclasses the installed python product and, sure enough, this zclass shows
up on menus.
The next step was to create a folder with a dtml page and an instance of the
zclass in it, and use the instance of the zclass in the dtml page, and that
Nonetheless, ultimately, that doesn't seem to be what I want. Unless I'm
missing something, that creates a single instance (object) of the class for
good and all. I see print statements from the constructor the first time I
ever bring the page up; afterwards, the object is still there, but it isn't
being created. The systems seems to be saving it.
What I really need is for a user to open a dtml page and create (his/her)
object in doing so, and then use it. I assume it's possible to do that in
dtml but I don't see any descriptions of how to do it. I'd appreciate
hearing from anyone who knows how this is done.
