http://localhost/cms/css/table.css"  means the folder structure is
 - css

sajuks is right...  The browser will try and fetch your css files, but the browser cannot access the web-inf folder.  JSP can (as it is run on the server), but the outside world cannot.

So as sajuks says, you need to move the CSS folder up a level.
