5.5.4 runs quite happily for me on JDK 1.4 (heck I do all of my 5.5.x 
development work on a 1.4 JDK). Can't say the same for Windows 98 - I 
use XP.

That fact it isn't mentioned is a pretty big hint ;).

Seriously, I do not think it is realistic to document everything that 
isn't implemented in one version that is in another. It leads to a 
unmaintainable mess of documentation.

BTW, I am pretty certain that if you take a cgiservlet.jar from 5.5.x 
and replace the one you downloaded with 5.0.x it will work quite happily.
