Thanks, but I'm aware of the Zcatalog section in the Zope book. I got the
ZCatalog perfectly working with my ZClasses.
However I'm building the next generation of our Zope based cms entirely with
external products, leaving ZClasses behind. Documention including the
developpers guide isn't any helpfull regarding the Zcatalog in this respect.

I have a product wich has a dictionary of dictionaries (items) for storing
data, including text data. One of the items fields is tekst (text). Of
course I can instruct the Zcatalog to catalog this product. But it won't
find the 'tekst' object (or any other) in the object in while creating

I'm clearly missing something here.
