If the HTML and JSP files are living together, is it possible that there is
no Apache involved in the current site?  Tomcat [alone] will serve HTML and
JSP and images and get it right.  Unless you have a reason for adding
Apache, I'd stick with Tomcat standalone.

You can convince Tomcat to use the htdocs folder-- there's no rule that
webapps have to live under /path/to/tomcat/webapps.  But using *that* folder
is going to cause some problems-- for one you'll be required to put a
WEB-INF under it-- and then you have to tell Apache not to serve anything in
or underneath WEB-INF.  Just seems like you're asking for trouble doing it
this way.  In addition you're going to have to configure the connector
between Apache and Tomcat, not always a straightforward task.
