well, this is good news!

thanks for the suggestion, I had considered the Phillips book. 
Because it's printed the Stephan's book was just more immediate to read !

Well, yes, I see that the test.py file is in the root directory of 
the checked out z3. It's also inside the root folder of the .tgz file 
downloaded via http from the site

The point is that I did not check out ! I used the Windows installer. 
The one Adam Groszer and I have been talking about yesterday on this list !

And,believe me, there's no test.py inside the folder it deployed. I 
used the windows searching facility and also the Crimson editor 
search facility. I used them on both the deployed folder (inside 
Python24/Lib/site-packages ) and on the instance folder too.

I found a test.py file inside zope/i18n/tests/ but it's NOT equal to 
the one from the checked out version.

Adam, could you tell me something this time too ;-) ?

Thanks so much to anybody for any hint
