In order to use


you need to be working in the root context. Out of the box, this means
document path webapps/Root/somepage.html
(at least for tomcat 3.1).

If you make your own context, you will need /contextname/somepage.html,
which will translate to webapps/contextname/somepage.html. All of that stuff
is configurable. Please study server.xml to figure
out how.

Good luck,
