If the application is served from apache in WSGI and application URL path is not / e.g. then the links/urls in the help window are broken. It does not have application URL in it. e.g.
Broken link:
when the correct url should be

Version tested 1.0

Steps to reproduce
1. Serve schooltool thru WSGI at http://server/schooltool/
2. Login to school tool
3. Click on the help link on the right corner
4. When the help window pops up click on any topic links to the left.

Expected Result: Display help information in the help window.

I have a patch for this problem which is attached.

There is some addition problem rendering + and - images in the help topic tree. That problem seems to be in tree.css of zope distribution.

Thanks for the patch.

Also, I'm not sure if anyone else on the project has run SchoolTool under WSGI yet. I may hit you up for some advice on that, since it has some clear advantages.
