in thread Why XML not well formed?

And since you have the byte offset in the file you can explicitly print the offending portion of the input with some context thusly:

perl -le 'open(X,shift())or die "$!";seek(X, 12000, 0)or die "$!";read + X, $b, 40;print $b, "\n", " " x 19, "^\n"' foo.xml

Update: Oop, I see by the paths mentioned you're on Wintendo; you'll probably want to adjust the quotes on that or store it into a file and run that (or just get a real shell and/or OS . . . :)
