Oops.. I thought I might end up eating my words by posting such a statement
on the Zope list. I didn't mean to suggest that it was dead, but that for
new development in Plone, it is recommended to use ZPT in favor of DTML.

I know that DTML is good for some things, but for someone just starting out
trying to learn Zope, it's preferable to steer them towards ZPT combined
with Python scripts.
