Forcing Tomcat to see css/image files

I am using a server configuration that uses both Apache and Tomcat with Apache using mod_jk to communicate with Tomcat.

The problem is that I have a JSP page under ROOT, using a path to images and css, /img and /css respectively. The only way the JSP page can see those files is if it is under httpdocs.

I am also running some php programs.

My hosts tech support says that they can remap Tomcat to see css and image files in Tomcat, but that will negatively affect my php programs. This seems wrong to me that parts of a web page have to be in a completely different directory.

Is there a way I can force my jsp file to look in its current directory for the image and css paths?
