Castor Un-Marshalling Error

I'm getting the following error when I attempt to un-marshall an xml document using Castor: Parsing Error : Content is not allowed in prolog.

I checked and there are no spaces before my opening <xml tag. The xml is well-formed as well.

Has anyone experienced this error before and can you share your experiences with me? I'll provide code samples if anyone responds...

Thank you

FYI -- I fixed this problem by using FileReader instead of StringReader to read in the input xml file. Thank you anyway.
I agree. Here's the link:
