Re: Parse Error - Invalid Character

xml parse error
Whoops, I typed without looking closely enough. The right angle bracket 
should be fine, since it doesn't need to be escaped unless it's in 
combination with ']]'. It looks like the parser is complaining about the 
? in "Watches ? Diamonds" - is this actually a non-printing character 
that's converted to a ? by your dump program? That's the only thing I 
can think of.
