I have to qualify my statement: if the *only* thing you're using Tomcat for is delivering
static content, then httpd would be better.  If you have other reasons to use Tomcat (e.g.,
running servlets or JSPs), then by all means use it as your static content server as well.
 You will generally see better performance overall by not having two servers in the mix forced
to communicate with each other.
