Here is another one where I cannot see anything wrong with the XML, but 3.182 is choking on it.

This is a hand-crafted tvshow.nfo file for a show that is not indexed by IMDB or TVDB.

Can you spot any reason why MC chokes on this?

<plot>In a four-part television series, Germans in America recounts the story of German

immigrants to the United States, using gripping stories about naive settlers and successful

farmers, about devout free-thinkers and political refugees, about the heyday of the

German-language press in America, and about the founders of industrial dynasties in the new

homeland.
Program 1- Into the Promised Land
Program 2- The Price of Freedom
Program 3- Little Germanies
Program 4- A People Disappears

Sixty million Americans have their origins in German-speaking countries. As America’s largest

ethnic group, the Germans made a significant mark on America’s cultural, business, and public

life for centuries until their identity fell victim to feelings of shame and repression during

and after two World Wars. But their achievements are still the basis for much of American

culture.

Location shooting, archival footage, the descendants of immigrants, and carefully done historical

recreation bring German-American history to life.


This series was originally created for broadcast in Europe. Thanks to generous support from the

German Information Center USA, South Carolina ETV and the Goethe-Institut released the

English-language version starting in March 2008 (satellite feed) via NETA, the National

Educational Telecommunications Association.

The problem is with "America's" apostrophe,

The correct syntax would be "America&apos;s"

And the easiest way to validate that the XML is faulty is to copy/past to "test.xml" and open it in explorer which says:
Code:

An invalid character was found in text content. Error processing resource 'file:///C:/TMP/test.xml'. Line 22, Position 84
