           Summary: Unclear error messages when the validator gets an empty
                    document
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Templates

Adds a comment on "document end in prolog" errors.

When the validator gets an empty document, the error message will be:
> Line 1, Column 0: end of document in prolog.
which is a little obscure.

Since I assume that a non-empty document can actually end in the prolog, I
suggest adding the following hint:
> This error is often caused by an empty document.
without changing the error message itself.
