[mod_python] PSP templates within publisher module

I have a website composed of some simple Python Server Page files and images in the same directory. The images are referenced from the pages without any qualification e.g. <img src="theimage.jpg"/> or <a href="about.psp">About us</a>. If the page is on http://localhost/company_name/index.psp, this works as http://localhost/company_name/theimage.jpg or http://localhost/company_name/about.psp is accessible. So far so good!
  I am adding a section to the website using the mod_python publisher handler. This will be implemented in a module called ClientArea.py. As part of this module, I want to be able to use the existing PSP files as templates and insert only the content relevant to the module. Assume I'm calling a function called "entryPoint" within this module, then the browser is now pointing at http://localhost/company_name/ClientArea.py/entryPoint. I am now having problems with the internal links because the unqualified link seems to be referring to an entity withing ClientArea.py - e.g. http://localhost/company_name/ClientArea.py/theimage.jpg. This resource doesn't exist though!
  I don't really want to duplicate the PSP pages and have one version with "../" prefixed. I also don't want to fully qualify the links.
  I welcome suggestions on what I should be doing here!
