yep.. well... this is quite a common question, all up.  It comes from people 
using shorthand, but not relaising it.  sometimes i wonder if this feature 
should be removed.

the line:

<dtml-if "id == 'index_html'">

is actually shorthand for:

<dtml-if expr="id == 'index_html'" >

which means your expression is handled as a python expression, not a DTML 
one.  In which case, you are comparing a function object (id)  with a string 
object ('index_html').

the simple fix is, of course, to 'call' the function....

<dtml-if "id() == 'index_html'">

should do what you're expecting.
