Tomcat is right.
I think it is the concept of your application that needs to be 
revisited.  The "/" character is *universally* considered as a path 
separator under HTTP, and as a directory separator under most OS 
(including Windows).  You may be able to find some solution that will 
work in some cases, but you will anyway have problems with this sooner 
or later somwhere else.
I suggest that you change your item names, rather than trying to "patch" 
this stuff left and right.  You will save yourself a lot of trouble in 
the long run.
