But if you transliterate any .html URL to .htm, then it works? Bizarre.

At least it's looking for .html files.. that's good... sorta.

What DocumentRoot or Alias do you have, and what's the real path of the 
file that should be served by "/examples/jsp/index.html".

Now that's interesting, too.

But it shouldn't matter, because Apache should be serving the html file,

Oh.. so you *are* serving html files from Tomcat. Might I ask why?

Can you double-check for all instances of "html" in your httpd.conf. It 
sounds like the httpd.conf is translating .html->.htm and perhaps even 

The last thing I can think of is that your build process is, for some 
reason, renaming these files. You're not deploying to a network share or 
anything that might re-name files as you copy them, are you? (Probably 
not). Sorry, I'm just reaching.. 'cause this doesn't make much sense.
