avoid the mixed-content warning over ssl

I'm using an Apache 2/Tomcat 5.5/SSL setup and keep receiving mixed-content warnings from IE. Apache is serving the static content like images, styles, etc. and Tomcat is serving the servlet/jsp's.

Every page I access popups the mixed content warning.

Can I modify a Tomcat or Apache conf file to eliminate this problem???


Thanks,
Dave

These messages are generated by the browser, not Tomcat or Apache HTTPD.

The way to eliminate them is to insure that ALL resources (images, iframes, etc..) linked from secure pages are called through SSL.

Relative links will do this automatically.

Also, with MSIE if you have an src or href attribute in an image or iframe tag with a blank value, this message will show up. To fix this I aim all empty iframes and images to a "blank.html" page.
