That's DTML. We don't really use DTML anymore, not even on Zope 2. Read
up on Zope Page Templates (ZPT).

Perhaps. It depends on what you want to do. Zope 3 has a more Pythonic
approach to developing web applications: Python packages, file system,

development/scripting. Zope 3 doesn't really have that.
