Sadly, the XML parser that ships with Java is not.

If you have a UTF-8 document and it includes the correct UTF-8 BOM,
Sun's Java 1.0.6_24 will fail saying "Content is not allowed in prolog".

If the error is "The processing instruction target matching
"[Xx][Mm][Ll]" is not allowed", then the problem is non-BOM whitespace
before the <?xml?> processing instruction (which is also pretty
inconvenient IMO).
