Thanks.  They are fairly old.  

That's because those specs, and the software they describe, are stable.

Also, last night, I was reading  about "Content Providers" and "Viewlets and Viewlet Managers" which  are TAL statements not listed in Appendix C or the TAL 1.4 Spec.

Nor should they be.  TAL is extensible, and those statements are extensions to TAL, not part of the standard.

I understand (now) that these specs are independent of Zope.  I hope I am not criticizing.  As a new beginner trying to find out what is in Zope 3, it is really hard to do.  It is great that everything is extensible but I just wish there was a solid single reference where all of "Zope 3" (what I start off when when I download the tar ball) was documented.

The Zope 3 book is not a reference book.  Its closer to a cook book.  And Weitershausen's book is an extended tutorial.  Both are very useful for that purpose but that are not reference books.
