Hi Andrew,
thank you very much for quick answer but I it doesn't work because
in my __init__.py I register the product with the initialize(context)

def initialize(context):
            constructors = (
            icon = 'www/Document_icon.gif'
        import sys, traceback, string
        type, val, tb = sys.exc_info()
        sys.stderr.write(string.join(traceback.format_exception(type, val, tb), ''))
        del type, val, tb

I think (not sure) that misc_={'iconId':
ImageFile('www/icon.gif',globals()).} will work only if product is not
registered by the old way (not my case) because I tried to put it on
different places of my __init__.py and wasn't succesfull.

Please, can anybody help me or give me a URL where the problems noted
below are solved. 

Thanks, Petr

    AKM> In your __init__.py;

    AKM> from ImageFile import ImageFile

    AKM> misc_={'iconId': ImageFile('www/icon.gif',globals()).}

    AKM> You then reference it is as:-

    AKM> <img src="/misc_/YourProductName/iconId">
