A question on the squishdot code...

I'm a new user of Zope and Squishdot. I started on by looking at the code of squishdot site. In one of the dtml documents, the code addresses a form action method. The code goes as:
<Form action="." Enctype="mutipart/form-data" method="post">
i would like to know the significance of the "." in the form actoion and to which url will it take me too

    probably nothing

    I don't think there is much significance. You could try taking out the whole action="." and it'll probably still work fine.

    I think it calls the current page with the form that you just submitted with the values that you just submitted. Look in the DTML document, it might have a DTML-IF in there somewhere that processes the values you just entered.

    In Unix shells "." means "here", this is what it probably means in this context as well. I haven't checked the docs, but I think that's what it does..
