Description bl 2011-02-17 15:13:54 UTC
Go to:
  http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/index.html

Scroll down to the link:
  Servlet API Javadocs - The Servlet 2.5 API Javadocs.

In the HTML it points to
  http://java.sun.com/products/servlet/2.5/docs/servlet-2_5-mr2/index.html

which oracle has so kindly made auto-redirect into 
  http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javaee/servlet/index.html
which isn't the java servlet 2.5 api docs at all, and has no way to navigate to them.

So... now our best options are:
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E17802_01/products/products/servlet/2.5/docs/servlet-2_5-mr2/
or
http://download.oracle.com/javaee/5/api/javax/servlet/package-summary.html
(because java ee 5 has the 2.5 servlet spec)

Fixed in 6.0.x and will be in 6.0.3 onwards.

Thanks for the report and the suggested links.
