Default Can't Run JSTL Outside of Root Folder


I can run JSTL in the root folder, but not outside.

If I create a separate folder in webapps, I do what the book tells me:
Create a web-inf folder and in the folder create a class folder and lib folder. In the lib folder I add the standard.jar and jstl.jar files. I have done nothing else with the tld files and did not create a web.xml file.

I have tried copying the web.xml files from the Root folder and added tablib tags pointing to the location of the tlds:


but it doesn't work.

Any help would be appreciated.

Forgot to identify my system:

I'm using Tomcat 5.0.28, J2SE (j2sdk-1_4_2_05-windows-i586-p.exe) and JSTL (jakarta-taglibs-standard-1.1.1.zip) on a Win98 system.
