      The *index_html* object provides a default view of the folder.  This
      is analogous to how an *index.html* file provides a default view for
      a directory in Apache and other web servers.

         Is there a reason index_html is used in Zope instead of index.html?

         Trivial. index_html is a legal python name. index.html would have to be 
         accessed as self["index.html"] etc.
