I had some JSP pages that worked on Netscape but not Tomcat. It 
turned out that Tomcat wanted to see a "=" separating the 
name=value pairs. From your example above, it looks like you're 
just trying to pass some numbers so you don't actually need 
the "=" (informationally), but Tomcat does to pass it on through 
the request.

Simply adding the "=" fixed it for me. Now, sometimes I'll add a 
label as the value, like: thedata=a_label, which is a visual 
convenience but ignored by the backend.

Just my experience.
