org.xml.sax.SAXException: Error while parsing

I have a problem in parsing xml file using JAXP SAXParser.
I recieve the following error message while parsing Date/number element in my xml file.

ACTIVITY_DATE :2006-08-22
org.xml.sax.SAXException: Error while parsing FinActivityDate 2006-08-
character array:2006-08-
start position in character array:2040

In our DTD file we specified the field as (#PCDATA),ByteArrayInputStream is used as inputsource for parse method

parser.parse(new InputSource(new ByteArrayInputStream(responseInBytes)),sAXHandler);

some of the records in xml are parsed successfully but throws SAXException when the buffer size reaches (1024*n) bytes(or chunk of character data)from here it is not able to parse the xml further..what could be the issue.

Any suggestions?
