You are a victim of Five here and the different semantics of it compared to zope.app.publisher. In zope.app.publisher the url for a resource is something like: <site url>/@@/<name> where <site url> is basically IAbsoluteURL for zope.site.getSite(). In Zope2 / Five we have: <context url>/++resource++<name> instead. The expression used in page templates to access resources is the same, though. The reason for this semantic difference is entirely historical. Five didn't support local component registries / sites at the time when support for resources have been added. This all happened before those local registries where simplified in one of the early Zope 3.x releases.
