Maybe not.  I've logged a bug (#12600) against Struts 1.1 that deals with
the inflexibility of the <html:form> tag, and it may be the same basic
problem. uses a method "getMappingURL" or something like that that
always prepends your action with the context path (incl. module path for
sub-apps).  Therefore, you can't use references relative to your current
location.  I ran into the problem with a multi-tier architecture that uses
virtual hosts to hide the context from the browser, but I can imagine you
might have similar issues with frames if for some reason you need to use
relative references...

Be aware that you need to be going through actions if you want your 
configuration provided for things like <html:form>.  Only by going 
through the controller are you able to have vital configuration 
information placed in the request - hitting JSP pages alone will not do it.

... sounds to me like that might be your problem.
