Tomcat, web.xml and "[xX][mM][lL]" is not allowed

Problem

So, I had the following issue when trying to run my web application from Eclipse deploying to a local Tomcat.

The processing instruction target matching "[xX][mM][lL]" is not allowed.

Solution

It turned out that I had an empty line at the beginning of my web.xml!
