Quite good.

We handle in the order of a million (fat) requests per day per Zope instance.
We currently have 5 Zope instances all interfacing via ZEO to the
same ZODB (thus, we handle in the order of 5 million (fat) requests per day)

Static objects are served by an external cache such that Zope
is usually only contacted for non-static objects (that's why I spoke
about "fat" requests above).

It support HTTP 1.0 and a bit of HTTP 1.1 (e.g. If-Modified-Since
and byte range requests for some appropriate object types).

But usually, you put an HTTP 1.1 compatible Web server before Zope
(e.g. Apache or Squid).

What standards are you interested in?

Its a web application *server*!

It does not help you with the client side
neither does it prevent you to use any client side technique you like...

See above.

Use as much JavaScript as you like...

Usually separate products (sometimes third party and commercial).
But for most well known databases...

HTTP, FTP, WebDAV and XML-RPC by default.

I read about people that used CORBA or SOAP to call
out of Zope or made Zope an SOAP server.
I do not know about published solutions, however.

You mean what by this?

The complete Zope management is via HTTP (and is easily extensible).
Therefore, it can be completely automated...

>3> How well does Zope rate in the security department?

I never heard that someone got operating system or even root access via Zope...

In the last few years there have been a few hotfixes -- usually
to fix problems in case you allow your visitors to create
executable content in your site. Security problems were
usually fixed very quick by a hotfix.
