Tomcat does not start in Browser

I have successfully set up Tomcat 6.0 on my windows machine. I can start/stop the service from windows task bar and services.msc console.
However when I try to run Tomcat in browser by typing http://localhost:8080 the page does not load. It shows me in the task bar(Waiting for http://localhost:8080) but in reality nothing appears. I tried changing ports from 8080 to 80 , 8080 to 8081, but still the same issue.
Can you please tell me what I am missing.
Thanks for the replies.

Dear suse,

Check tomcat's log file for errors (logs/catalina.out) to see if it started all-right.

Once Tomcat started, check with netstat that it is actually listening to the port. Also, if you are using IE, switch off the 'friendly' error messages to see what the real error is.

Hi, I have the following log files. I am not able to interpret it properly,
Would you please have a look at it:

Digester is used to parse configuration files that are XML formatted.

IF this was my problem I would search all XML files in the tomcat installation for "cp1252"

CP1252 is a Windows character set, I believe some of the characters are invalid in XML documents which may be why digester complained.

I hope nobody used Word to edit configuration files

http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/tomcat-dev/200903.mbox/%3Cbug-46908-78@https.issues.apache.org/bugzilla/%3E

If this bug report is to be relieved cp1252 is now the default.

It also includes a suggested workaround.
