You do not use "dtml-" (especially "dtml-sqlvar") in ZPT.

The body of your Z SQL Methods remains DTML (with SQL extensions)
even when you use PageTemplates for presentation.

You can pass (keyword!) parameters to your Z SQL Methods.
In ZPT, it looks somehow like:

   <XXX tal:repeat="row ZSQLMethod(FolderIssue=here.FolderIssue)">
