Hi Andrew

In that case, please skip DTML and go straight to ZPT. DTML is like
the ghost train in an amusement park, but the ghosts are real. Especially
if you're a newbie.

> <dtml-let eventsDict="{}">
>    <dtml-let calstart="somestring">
>       <dtml-call "REQUEST.set(eventsDict[calstart]=id)">
>    </dtml-let>
> </dtml-let>

Don't code python in a template. Call a Python Script which prepares
your dictionary instead. E.g.
<ul tal:define="eventsDict here/getEvents">...</ul>
