Seam Resource Servlet

We're using seam as our web framework and I was just wondering how to get more information on what types of content the Seam resource servlet covers?

Looking at the seam docs it mentions captcha and remoting, etc. and I took a look at the seam source and saw the image resources, etc.
But what I really want is a full list of the resources that the servlet recognises?

For example, within our framewok we have some generated html pages that reside under our /docs folder of our project.
We've configured the seam resource servlet to :-

Now when we redirect to the url seam/resource/document/[filename].html , instead of the html pages being served as html and thus the browser displaying the page as html, it's serving the .html file as a file and thus the user is asked whether they want to save or open the document.

I get that the html files are in the wrong place but because I don't know all the resource servlets mappings, I can't work out where these html pages should sit?
Any help would be appreciated.

PS. The need to have the files served by the resource servlet is pretty strict for reasons I won't outline here, so just suggesting that we move the files elsewhere is not a solution, I'd like a bit more information regarding the seam resource servlet and why we shouldn't use it if this is what you suggest.
I agree. Here's the link:
