Rendering images with CSS in struts

I am trying to render an image on a JSP page through CSS in a struts application.

This is what I'm trying to do:

CSS
...
#topbar
{
width: 100%;
height: 50px;
background: #0066FF
url(/images/logo.gif) no-repeat center center;
}
...

JSP
...
<link href="CSS/styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
...
<div id="topbar" />
...

The JSP reads the CSS file fine since all other formatting is acknowledged however the image for my top bar is not displayed. The background shows up fine. It seems like a context relative issue but I'm not sure how to resolve it. Any suggestions much appreciated.

Thanks.

You probably need to put your context path in the background-image url.
