[jdom-interest] Issue with xml prolog

I am getting following error when i try to parse the following xml
<attribute ><value>
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
There are no  whitespaces before prolog of xml (ie  before <?xml..)
and also not before <attribute>. But it still gives me the folllowing error.  

org.jdom.input.JDOMParseException: Error on line 1: The processing
instruction target matching "[xX][mM][lL]" is not allowed

Most of the places i googled people tell to remove white spaces before prolog to correct it. But here in my xml data there are no white spaces before prolog. 

Please suggest where i am going wrong.

Thanks and Regards,
