<jtk at yahoo.com> might have written:

>...  def bar(self):
>...   print chr(eval(self.myhex))

If the representation contains the '0x' prefix, you can do it as:
print chr(int(self.myhex, 0))

If it's without it, you can
print self.myhex.decode('hex')

Don't know if the latter is available for Zope currently :(
