Bad Errors

Apache Tomcat/4.1.18-LE-jdk14
Parse Fatal Error at line 551 column 44:
 The string "--" is not permitted within comments.
org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The
    string "--" is not permitted within comments.
    at org.apache.xerces....createSAXParseException

One thing that drives me crazy about Xerces parsing is that error messages usually don’t include the file the error is occurring in. I realize this isn’t the fault of Xerces, so much as the folks using it…but come on: it sure it would be nice to know which file that nasty line 551 lives in.

And not being about to have double hyphens in XML comments: don’t even get me started on that one.
