[jdom-interest] Newbie can't parse document!

I tried to read a different file and it worked. Therefore the code I am
using should be ok but the file I am reading is not. I have checked the two
files and the only difference is that one as a dtd and the other does not. I
have created the builder using the (false) constructor so I thought that
this would bypass the dtd.

The top part of the web.xml file is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

<!DOCTYPE web-app
    PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.2//EN"

Where I work we use a proxy server so I cannot ping java.sun.com.

Is the dtd or proxy causing this problem?
