Hi Chris

Im not  sure what  Im talking about when I say Url Rewriting, all I know 
is I have to support both versions of the url. The servlet is the only 
thing running so I can think I can just have a servlet engine running, 
and not even bother with a webserver at all, so could you tell me how to 
do the mapping you specify in the tomcat config
