In Eclipse Web Project I have files:

WebContent\css\style.css
WebContent\pages\life\life.jsp

How do I link style.css in life.jsp ?

This does NOT work.
<link href="css\styles.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">

Could you please suggest how do I link correctly ?

check this:

This sort of directive should work, but you will need to be sure of the path you're using:

<%@ include file="/path_to/your_css_file.css" %>

Yes. I like relative path. But can  in every page  this costs two "/" and couple of dots.  Can we make it more simpler ?

not understood.

>>>Have you tried ? without tiring your saying ?

No.  I said because jsp lies  two folders down i.e ( "pages" , "life" ).   and  css is just under root .  So that should not work.

Do you still say that will work. how come ?

I tried when it is in HTML ..this does not work.

Do you mean when I deploy in server as JSP, this will work ?
