WSAD error accessing css in jsp

Hello all,
Getting a strange error message in WSAD. I am testing my app on the default WSAD server.
I start the server and goto the built-in web browser and access the login.html.
This posts to a servlet which then verifies and forwards to the next window which is a
jsp. When it gets to the jsp, the css it is supposed to use does not get used. I
get this error in the console window

In relation to the jsp the css file is ../css/nyk-style-00.css. In the jsp I am using the following to load it.

I have also tried it the following way without the quotes.

I have also tried it straight without an intermediate string.

Anyone have any ideas? It works when I use the full path to the css instead of the relative path.

What is this /css/nyk-style-00.css ? Where is it defined? In your web appliation (WAR)?

I have found a solution besides calling the full path. When you run a JSP on the test server, the test server treats it as a servlet and as such the ../css/SomeCSS.css does not exist. It can be referenced from css/SomeCSS.css. Also, the paths of the links need to be adjusted as well.
Does anyone know if this is expected behavior? Will it act this way when it is deployed?
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
