Thanks for putting this together.  I have a few comments, mostly nit-picking.

This give the impression that java.util.logging == JULI, which is a bit misleading.  Perhaps
something more along the lines of "java.util.logging, as implemented by JULI" would be more

Typo: "you class" should be "your class".

Drop the "out like" from the end of that sentence.

Remove the "a" prior to the "2".

Terminate that last sentence with a question mark, not a period.

The first "it's" above is correct, as a contraction of "it is"; the second one is not, since
the possessive "its" does not contain an apostrophe.  There are several other occurrences
of the same typo, which I won't list.

> .level = OFF

Might want to also mention the other pseudo-level ALL for the serious tree-killers.

> How do I customize the location of the tomcat logging.properies file?

"logging.properies" should be "".

Not true - the script does set the property if the conf/ file exists.  See
lines 182-185 of the 6.0.16 script.  It also set java.util.logging.manager to
point to the JULI LogManager implementation.

This is a superb addition to the Tomcat documentation set; thanks again for creating it.
