      Zope breaks apart the URL and compares it to the object
      hierarchy, working backwards until it finds a match for each
      part.  This process is called *URL traversal*. For example, when
      you give Zope the URL *Zoo/LargeAnimals/hippo/feed*,  it starts
      at the root folder and looks for an object named *Zoo*. It then
      moves to the *Zoo* folder and looks for an object named
      *LargeAnimals*. It moves to the *LargeAnimals* folder and looks
      for an object named *hippo*. It moves to the *hippo* object and
      looks for an object named *feed*. The *feed* script can't be
      found in the *hippo* object and is located in the *Zoo* folder
      by a process called *acquisition*.

         s/by a process called acquisition/by acquisition/ 

         Every reader should know the term "acquisition" by now.

         Unless they skipped straight here like I did...

         It is reasonable to assume that someone reading the" Advanced..." chapter has read or at least understands
         its predecessor, the "Basic..." chapter. I'm with May 29.

         I skipped straight here too. Perhaps make "Aquisition" a A HREF to its earlier explanation ?

         I skipped straight here too, because I have a job to do. I know Python and Zope, and I just want to write a
         small script.

         June 19 - If you "know Zope" and you don't know Acquisition, then you don't know Zope. Im with May 29. Now
         lets move on.
