Hi Andy - the modern product init doesn't currently provide 
any special handling of misc_ (though it probably should in 
the future to make registration an explicit operation). If
a misc_ mapping is found in your __init__.py by the product
initialization code, its items will be installed in the 
misc_ object of the top-level application object. So you'll 
want to do something like:

from Globals import ImageFile

misc_={'imagef': ImageFile('foo.gif', globals()),
       'imageg': ImageFile('goo.gif', globals()),

When your product is initialized, the items in your misc_ 
will be installed in the application objects' misc_, and 
you can refer to them thereafter in your dtml as:

  <dtml-var BASEPATH1>/misc_/imagef
  <dtml-var BASEPATH1>/misc_/imageg

etc. I don't know what 'lang_' does, so I'm not sure what 
to advise you there...
