Subject Re: Content is not allowed in prolog. - text editor for Windows XP that shows special characters before the prolog

prolog <?xml
  I also checked for another possibility which is, if the xml file was missing we get this
same error, but the xml file was there in the deployed directory under webapps
  There might be something wrong on what I have in my web.xml , compared to what's in the
  <%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="" %>
<%@ taglib prefix="x" uri="" %>
  I am using the latest tlds and jar files.

^^ Are these spaces actually there in your xml, or is that just how
you pasted it into your email? Some XML parsers are very picky about
having _anything_, even whitespace, before the '
