You are trying to mix together two completely different ways of using style sheets: external and embedded. You cannot do this.

Either call external css from your HTML <head>, one of two ways:
<style type="text/css">@import url("<%=request.getContextPath()%>/WEB-INF/mystyle.css");</style>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<%=request.getContextPath()%>/WEB-INF/mystyle.css" />

Either use inline styles, if you want to apply styles to this one specific <a> tag.:
<a href="PropertyController?action=list" style="custom declarations - static OR <%  - dynamically generated if you wish %>">
