the chapter "Basic Concepts" of my upcoming Zope book is
ready for preview. It covers Zope site building objects, Web publishing,
name lookup, DTML, site management and Zope security.

I consider it a valuable resource beside (and probably after)
the official Zope book.
It covers many of the questions that recur often in Zope's main
It is currently in a pre-alpha state. I know of the following
* lack of graphics to explain difficult concepts (such as
DTML namespace, acquisition and Zope's security model)
* many broken links
If external links are broken, it was my lazyness.
Broken internal links are caused by Python's XML processing
tools not yet being fully up to process DocBook.
* synopsis sections look very strange, caused by small bugs
in Norman Walsh's DocBook stylesheets
* lack of a stylesheet to improve presentation
