|Notice! This page describes the nature of the error using a hypothetical example and not the erroneous data of the input test file. You should however be able to apply this information to your error case.|
XML declaration is not at the beginning of the file where it should be. XML declaration looks something like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-15"?>
It should be stated before the actual XML content begins. This error can occur for example if there are multiple XML documents in one file or there is double declaration.
In this case, extra declaration should be removed.
