	For this type of error, probably not. As I said, tomcat uses an XML
parser (probably
	Xerces, as it's from apache..). So the place to look for any
documentation
	on xml-parser-related errors is in the Xerces(?) documentation.

	In general, the documentation on tomcat isn't very in-depth. That's
the price
	you pay for using open-source; who wants to write docs when they
could
	be coding :-) Having said that, people are working on it, so I guess
that the
	situation will improve over time. For now, though, you need to
scratch the
	old noggin a bit, search the email archives, and in extreme cases,
read the
	code...and for those really tough cases, there's always this group.

	Cheers,

	Simon
