Well, sure, but closing it in the finally block should close it. You  
are closing the in and out in the finally block, right?

At a different level, since you want this to be XML, you might try  
using tagsoup as your SAX parser:
http://home.ccil.org/~cowan/XML/XML/tagsoup/

this will clean up your HTML for you so you can hopefully avoid the  
error in the first place.

However, before you do that, it would be a good idea to find out why  
you can't close your streams.

Also, perhaps separate out the read and write into two different try  
blocks.

best,
-Rob
