Couple of more things:

1) if your site is running, you can look at the actual code throught 
Zope's TTW interfact.  http://your.domaine.com/manage will get you there 
if you have the proper authentication.

2) you can ftp out the code for off line reading.  Look at The Zope Book
for instructions.  You may need to enable the ftp server in the 
configuration file.
