That's how I thought it should be, but the current Cocoon install 
instructions for Tomcat (which I didn't write) seem to map the whole webapp 
through to Tomcat, which is inefficient since Apache is faster. But correct 
me if I'm wrong - I don't know much about configuring Apache.

Anyway, can someone post a modified install document showing the KNOWN 
WORKING configuration lines which just map .xml files and servlets to 
Tomcat, nothing else - I will then update the documentation (but not the 
install cases because I don't want to touch them for fear of introducing 
subtle bugs). Maybe just what Dima said is enough and those 
tomcat-apache.conf lines specified in the current install instructions can 
be ignored (I think the WEB-INF thing is redundant because Tomcat does that 
anyway). As I say I don't know much about it.
