I'm ebarresed to say how long I have been trying to get my first servlet running, so I won't, but it's too long.
this is what I have done:
I'm on windows 98;
Using j2se 1.4;
Downloaded tomcat 4.1 and set it up as instructed, sucessfull with http;localhost:8080 and I can compile servlets;
Created an Html file, and put it in:
TOMCAT_HOME\Webapps\datetest\datePrintTest.html
<html>
<head>
<title>date servlet test</title></head>
<body>
<h2> server side include test </h2>
<p>
todays date should be here:<servlet code="/web_inf/classes/DatePrintServlet"></servlet>
as you can see the actual servlet is off the dateTest folder, as instructed here is the source file (compiled and the .class file is in the same directory).

So, when I type into my browser:
http://localhost:8080/datePrintTest
and the html page appears, why is there no date, just the surrounding text.
PLEASE HELP.

Where did you find an example of this usage?

That looks realllly strange. You should spend some time examining the Tomcat examples.
