Objects have an absolute_url method that will give their full URL.

<dtml-var "someobject.absolute_url()">


<dtml-with someobject><dtml-var absolute_url></dtml-with>

or (better)

<a href="" tal:attributes="href context/someobject/absolute_url">link 

or (Python script)



"My point and period will be throughly wrought,
Or well or ill, as this day's battle's fought."
