The server.xml docs are not 100% complete yet, but this one is in fact
mentioned.  Start up Tomcat, and browse to:

  http://localhost:8080/docs/config/index.html

and select the "Host" element in the navigation menu.  Down near the
bottom (in the "Special Features" section), you will find documentation on
"Host Name Aliases", which covers the nested <Alias> element.

(From the Tomcat default home page, follow the "General Tomcat User
Documentation" link, followed by "Server Configuration").

For server.xml stuff, see the link above.  For web.xml, that is defined in
the Servlet Specification, which you can download from:

  http://java.sun.com/products/servlet/download.html

Tomcat 4 conforms to the most recent Proposed Final Draft of the Servlet
2.3 and JSP 1.2 specifications.
