For what it's worth, the vast majority of the XML out there (especially if
you're parsing RSS feeds, etc.) is written by monkeys and is totally
ill-formed. It seems the days of 'it looked OK in my browser' are still here.
To find out if it's your app or the XML, you could try running the XML through
a validating parser. There are also various tools out there which might be
able to parse the XML anyway -- xmllint, I believe, can do this.
