I'm getting the following errors when I try to compile the JSP file that follow.  Any help with this greatly appreciated.

trackingErrorPage$jsp.java [118:1] 'else' without 'if'
                        else if (exception instanceof Class NotFoundException )
                        ^
trackingErrorPage$jsp.java [130:1] 'else' without 'if'

JSP file follows below:

?xml version = "1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<!-- trackingErrorPage.jsp -->

<%-- page settings --%>
<%@ page isErrorPage = "true" %>
<%@ page import = "java.util.*" %>
<%@ page import = "java.sql.*" %>

<html xmlns = "http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head>
<title>Error!</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

        <%-- continue error message output --%>
