sounds like you've already got that, albeit not in the typical manner

and I assume this is working as long as you dont need to include the
output from jsps?

have you been through the howto in the tomcat documentation?  

I can see what you're saying, and it all makes sense, and I also think
that it would probably be handled by getting mod_jk up and running.  Have
a read of the tomcat docs in the distribution that you have (what version
of tomcat and apache do you have btw?  I'm assuming 3.x and 1.3.x).  I
dont know a lot about the way apache handles shtmls but assume that it
will process a jsp if it is mounted using a JkMount.

so in short, see how you go with the howto in the docs and let us know (o:
