I'm confused by your monologue :)

Where did you add a zcml tag? What stuff was not needed to add?

This should work, as it should compute the correct URL the resource for 
you in the zpt. Can you confirm this? Note that the "mystyling.css" file 
does not need to exist for the URL to be computed. The "resource" 
objects provided by zope.fanstatic are slightly stupid still in that sense.

The resource URLs will look different now indeed. The one that was 
computed in the ZPT however, should work. Did you try to use that 
computed URL?

Another quick question: did you have the resource publisher WSGI 
component configured in your app's WSGI pipeline? This publisher 
component will recognize the resource URLs and serve them for you.
