I am just starting to try and learn servlets and I was wondering:
1. What is the most commonly used web server when embedding servlets?
2. Which web server do you prefer
Thanks.

I give two thumbs up to Tomcat.

I am thinking everyone likes Tomcat? I don't know, maybe I am reading too much into the responses.
Thanks guys!!

I'm currently doing the the Cattle Drive here at the JavaRanch. In order to complete the Servlet assignments there, they recommend the Orion server. See the CattleDrive / Servlet Assignment 1.
I was able to pull it down and install it with no problems (just follow the directions). Runs great for local testing of servlets for me.

I would just like to put in a plug for Caucho's Resin. It supports Servlet 2.3/JSP 2.2 specs, has great xml support and other extremely handy features like auto-compilation of servlets and beans. BTW, on my system at home I have Resin, Tomcat 4, Macromedia's JRun and New Atlanta's ServletExec and they all have their respective nice features.
