just wondering  if external methods too return zope objects. I will try to be more specific. 

My external method is an python script that access the database and get a recordset for me. It passes back the recordset to the dtml method( as i am using an dtml to call the external method). When i try to display the things. The only thing i was able to do was display the whole record set using an <dtml-var <method-name> . 
i tried with <dtml-in and <dtml-call but both of them also did the same thing,  so i just wonder if the external method is passing back an Result Object or just a string. 

Is there any way that i can call a script from another script. I mean if its passing back a string, i can use another script to format the string into items which would be helpfull to dispaly in a table format.
