Default Problem with background images in CSS & Tomcat


I have problems displaying background images using CSS through the tomcat server.

I basically have a html file which links to a css file which has the background style. An example of one of the styles is

    background-image : url(../images/Tabs/centeractivetab.png);
    background-repeat : repeat;
    font-family : verdana,arial,sans-serif ;
    text-decoration: none;
    cursor: default;

The background image appears when I load the html file directly through IE. However, when I load it through the tomcat server, the background image is not there.

I am currently using Tomcat 5.0. I am really sure its because of Tomcat cause I tried another servlet, IIS, and it worked there.

Any idea why is this happening?
