Hi there--

I don't know that this is the right place to ask this, but I'm new to Zope, and 
looking for ideas about how to get to where I need to go...

I would like to be able to extend an SQL Method so as to be able to add 
presentation data about each field so that I could do iterate through a 
collection of field objects and have each one produce the right formattingin 
HTML.  For example, specifying a css class or appropriate input type.

I don't know if this is right way to go about this in Zope.  I'm just trying 
figuring out what the best "zope ways" are of flexibly adding presentation 
metadata to the data I'm pulling out of my DB.

And if there's a better place to ask a question like this, please let me know.

Thanks in advance,
Kevin Chambers
