Hi I am trying to use templates. My app use JSF 2.0 and primefaces.

I have debugged it and it works well, until it reaches the the template; the code is below and the error is:

javax.faces.view.facelets.FaceletException: Error Parsing /welcome1.xhtml: Error Traced[line: 3] The processing instruction target matching "[xX][mM][lL]" is not allowed.

¿Any clue?

The very first item on the very first line of your XML file must start with "<?xml " in column 1. If anything preceeds that, the XML parser/validator will object.

If you'll notice, your error message is complaining about finding it on line 3.
