then answers own question...

zsh uses functions...

# If this is an xterm set the title to user at host:dir
case $TERM in
        chpwd () { echo -en "\033]0;$(print -P "$USER@%m:%~")\007" ;} # oddly %h expands like %!

maybe there is a way to make print work like echo -en, or to have print
-P properly expand %h, but I'm not sure...
