Guys, please calm down :-) Nobody told you that we are going to take 
DTML away. The point is pretty easy: if you are new to Zope then there 
is very little reason to get in touch with DTML (other than for ZSQL 
methods). ZPT is recommendation for generating markup for years. It is 
well maintained and documented and adopted. We should not throw newbies 
into the  DTML hell - if you use it for legacy reasons or whatever 
reason, fine. The official message for newbies is likely: use ZPT.
