XML Tools - XML Parsing Error points to wrong line



  • I use the XML Tools plugin to find incorrect characters in large (100MB +) files. XML Tools - “Check XML Syntax Now” has always been a perfect tool for this.
    Recently I was presented with a file 54MB in size. it flagged an error as follows:

    “XML Tools Plugin
    XML Parsing error at line 901530:
    Extra Content at the end of the document”

    The tool pops to that location and no issue is there.

    After struggling to understand the issue, I chopped the file in two. When I ran the same test on the smaller front end of the file (34MB), it flagged an error as follows:

    “XML Tools Plugin
    XML Parsing error at line 67545:
    xmlParseCharRef: invalid xmlChar value 26”

    The tool pops to that location and the issue is obvious.

    Line 67545
    <tran_desc1>Alana�s Taxi</tran_desc1>

    I have never needed to chop these files down in order to find these issues. Please advise.
