I put a <error-page> in my web.xml, but it doesn't work.
I continue receiving the default message from the browser,
but I would like that my "default error page" to be shown.
I'm using tomcat-4.1.29.

what about in your jsp's?
are u using:
<%@page errorPage="yourPage" %>
and your actual error page should also have:
<%@page isErrorPage="true" %>
Hope this helps
