State Machine Design Pattern

I need a state machine to track the character tokens that I read in. Basically I have an XML stream that's going to be written to a Writer object. I am writing a FilterWriter that will look for the XML prolog string:
< ?xml version='1.0'?>
and filter that out.
Do you have any pointers to sample code for a state machine in Java or maybe a design pattern for it? Thanks all.
