Hi All,

I get the following error, when I do a schema validation.

Error on line 1: Content is not allowed in prolog.

I want through, the jdom archives, but did not get a resolution. Some
say it is a parser problem. Iam using xerces.jar, the one distributed
via the jdom-1.0 distriution.

Some say, it is a windows file encoding problem. I tried saving it ,
with notepad in different formats, that did not work

The XML is as follows

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>










The code for schema validation


SAXBuilder builder =

SAXBuilder("org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser", true);






                                    Document tmpdoc = builder.build(new


Appreciate your experiences.
