Re: supress errors?
It's possible that the XML has been edited using a non-XML aware editor such as Notepad and has been saved using an encoding thats different from the encoding specified in the prolog. For example, the prolog is the traditional: <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?> ...and Notepad has saved the file in ANSI. Its pure speculation as ever because the OP didnt provide a failing example.
