Subject RE: Tomcat vs. Apache/Tomcat

Can you tell me what you mean by 
"Apache can handle static pages better"

Thats a very broad statement.
Do you mean better performance?  More standards
compliant?   

So far, based on what you said, if I'm not interested
in other languages, i.e. perl, php, etc, there is not
a strong reason to use Apache as opposed to just
Tomcat.
