Xerces xml Parsing error

P: n/a
I've just installed Xerces 2.5 to try and use SAX to parse some xml (was
having problems before).

Now every time I attempt to parse, I'm getting the following:
org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Content is not allowed in prolog.

The xml is:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<message sender="sadasdssad" dateSent="Feb 26, 2004 3:55:24 PM CST">

The code is:
StringReader stringReader = new StringReader(message);
InputSource in = new InputSource(stringReader);
parser = new SAXParser(); //org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser
System.out.println("About to Parse.");
System.out.println(message.charAt(0)); // first char is firschar of prolog

Does anyone have any idea what's going on here? I've been beating my head
against a wall for a day now.

Thanks in advance,
