Some text did not show up in my post....
The tags not accepted are:
<dispatcher>REQUEST</dispatcher> <dispatcher>FORWARD</dispatcher> <dispatcher>INCLUDE</dispatcher> </filter-mapping>
It isn't in the 2.3 DTD
Can you switch to version 2.4 ?
Don't know if will be a problem or not, but I use ajax4jsf via Seam (don't have to setup the filter mapping) with a non 2.4 web.xml without problems.
I'll look into upgrading the servlet container to 2.4.
But I'd rather not have to do that.
I originally ask the question because of weird things happening in IE7.
Everything I've done with richfaces until now is working fine in FF2 and IE6 but not in IE7.
My JSF is configured for Client state saving and most of my navigation is forwarded.
I switched from 2.3 to 2.4 and see no differences.
