Just tried - and that does work, but the actual site will be changing 
before long.

That's right 'links' simply contains a list of objects and descriptions as 
shown above. When a web page is displayed the objectname is prepended by 
the directory component. I assumed that Zope did that, but I guess I was 

What I really need is to change this line:-

tal:attributes="href python:opt[0]" 

to something like:-

tal:attributes="href '/mysite/links/' python:opt[0]

but I can't figure out how to prepend python:opt[0] with '/mysite/links/'.

Any hints?
