According to Core Servlets & Java Server Pages (pg 310) the directory is:
<install dir>/webapps/ROOT

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen all at once.

First let me ask you a question, r u using tomcat as a standalone server or plugin for apache?
If you r using it as a standalone server, then i think it is not the best way to generate your html files using tomcat. Because tomcat is not much efficient and configurable as apache. It takes some time to generate simple html files. So i would like to prefer you to use tomcat as a plugin and add ur html files under apache->html directory.
If u want to use tomcat as a stand alone server, then u have to place you files in webapps directory.
I hope u find this info useful.
