Don't throw in that towel yet!  Here's one easy solution: Configure
Tomcat so that .htm pages are handled as jsps.  This is easy to do:
Modify the web.xml (for the server, not the application itself) so that
the jsp servlet handles .htm files.  Also .htm should be taken out of
the mime types of web.xml in that same file.  Obviously, be very careful
that all your static html files are .html if you do this.  One advantage
of this is that it means that your server isn't advertising what kind of
back-end technology it is using.  Less information is often better.
