I guess it really depends on what components you are using in your application.

If you are using JSTL/JSF or plan to then, Tomcat 6.0.x is built
according to Servlet 2.5/ JSP 2.1 spec according to this chart:

So, that means your project's web.xml should have the default
namespace, xsi namespace and schema location to 2.5 --- this ensures
proper evaluation of (Unified) EL

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<web-app xmlns=""
         xsi:schemaLocation=" web-app_2_5.xsd"


JSP 2.1 also supports Unified EL, so one can use JSF 2.1 and JSTL 1.2
in a seamless way. I haven't really tried this but have read about it
in a few articles.

Note that in Tomcat 5.5.x the web-app is considerably different as it
conforms to Servlet 2.4 spec.

The RELEASE-NOTES document , in the root folder of Tomcat 6.x covers a lot more.
