Zope takes a while to get going with, and DTML is really too ugly to live.
But I seriously disagree with the idea that Nope is a replacement.  Nope is
a weblog/database front end system, as far as I can tell.  Zope is a
framework for giving objects an interface to the net.  You can do a lot of
cool things with it, including implementing a process/workflow control
system like CMF on top of it.

Somebody posted a pointer to webware, which is a lot closer to Zope in

I do take offense at the idea that I would post a pointer to a system that
uses Cold Fusion...:)
