This means that you have an <init-param> element somewhere in the web.xml
where it's not valid according to the DTD. The order of the elements is
significant and defined by the DTD. Look at the DTD, either online (the
URL is in the web.xml file) or in the Servlet 2.2 specification to see
how the elements must be ordered.
