You usually get this if you've damaged an XML file - in this particular case, your WEB-INF/web.xml.

XML wants the Processing Instruction that identifies the content as XML to start on the first line in column 1:


If the initial angle bracket has leading spaces (or worse yet, leading text) OR if there are blank lines, the XML validator is likely to reject it and give this message.
