The correct usage of the namespace variable is _[name]; so you can get at
the height property of the object named in the variable my_image as:


The ZSP page uses this to correlate an Image named in the ZSP XML file to
the images in the Folder, see:


where we access images named in the LOGO attribute:

  <dtml-var "_[LOGO].tag(alt=COMPANY)">

This code generates an image tag for the Image object in question.
