Cool. Two question:

1. What is the difference between "Y/N" and "-" in a column? Y/N seems
to mean "does not matter". Does "-" mean "does not apply"? If both WAR=Y
and DIR=Y (column headers, not row headers) which takes precedence?

2. Does the order of your table indicate precedence -- for example, we
"prefer" XML to, say, WAR or DIR, right? If so, that indicates that we
prefer "WAR" to "DIR" but above the table you say "If both a WAR and a
DIR are available for a web application, Tomcat will serve content from
the DIR." which indicates the opposite. Perhaps the rows in the table
could be re-ordered to indicate the order in which Tomcat checks for
those artifacts -- stopping at the first one found and processing
according to the rules you are trying to express.
