Default ch15: can't get JSTL to be recognized

I've tried everything to try to get the Ch15 struts example to "recognize" the JSTL library. The error is:

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: This absolute uri (http://java.sun.com/jstl/core_rt) cannot be resolved in either web.xml or the jar files deployed with this application

I've tried putting the jstl.jar and standard.jar in my application lib directory, in tomcat's common/lib, putting entries in web.xml, leaving them out of web.xml but I still keep getting the same error. I have tried putting in the tld files in the WEB-INF directory and leaving them out. I have seen many conflicting examples of what to do.
I am using jstl 1.0.2 with tomcat 4.1.24.on a linux machine. Anyone know where the files are supposed to go to make the chapter 15 struts example work?

Is that Beginning JSP Web Development or Beginning JSP 2.0?

I haven't worked with this particular permutation of JSTL and web container, but what is worth trying is putting the tld in WEB-INF (or anywhere else) and map the taglib declaration directly to the tld.

<%@taglib uri="/WEB-INF/jstl_core_rt.tld" prefix="c"%>

Not my preferred way of setting up taglibs, but it should work whatever happens.

By the way, is that plain vanilla Tomcat 4 or one of the JSP 2.0 preview versions? Cause the _rt taglib isn't going to be very useful outside a JSP 2.0 container, you won't get EL support.
