Zope should insert it if it isn't there and the page is recognized as 
HTML. Or al least, so says the source. Perhaps you should try to set it. 
I think REQUEST.URL1 or absolute_url should work for a value. Check the 
HTML source of zope.org to see one.

I'm pretty sure those should work with ports. How does this render?
