This raises a good point -- considering that probably 99% of tutorials 
and books teach "Hello World" using the invoker servlet, I'm surprised 
there isn't a strong warning that this functionality has been disabled 
on the front page of the Tomcat pages.

Then again, a big warning about the introduction of superglobals and 
deprecation of register_globals on the PHP site didn't do anything to 
stop the tide of confusion, so maybe it'd be for naught.
