Looking at twisted.web.woven.widgets.Text - if you want to return a node 
that contains 'Raw' text (i.e. text that doesn't need to be escaped - as 
in your case where you want to return form elements) you use

from twisted.web import domhelpers
textNode = domhelpers.RawText(data)

Does that answer your question.

I also highly recommend you have a good look at 'woven', and probably in 
your case specifically 'lmx'.
