    Strange interpetation of a CSS link inside login page

    Nikola Vanevski Newbie

      Hi all,

      I ran into a pretty strange issue with CSS links inside the login page, using FORM authentication method. Take a look at this page header :

       <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
       <title>Main login page</title>
       <link href="css/main.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
      --- rest of the page ---

      This code works fine when the page is shown standalone, and elements are shown according to definitions in the css file. However, once I put this page in <form-login-page>, following things happen :

      - Elements lose their properties, like the css is not included at all

      - After succesfull login, user is redirected to the css/main.css file, i.e. contents of the css file are shown in the browser (is this some shortcut for redirection to a specific file different from the welcome file?)

      If I remove the <link href = ...> tag and put all css styles inside a "style" tag, everything is ok.

      However, I'd like to have the styles inside a css (normally) and page should be displayed accordingly. Is this a configuration issue or a bug?

      I repeat that if I get the page out of the <form-login-page> tag in web.xml, it is displayed properly, and the user is normally redirected to index.jsp file.
