I often use:

<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="/css/main.css">
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" 
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="${initParam.css}/main.css">

where ${initParam.css} refers to an init param in web.xml (useful if it 
needs to change with the deployment, such as a version number)
