Increasing text length creates error

Hi, all
I have a form for which am trying to increase length from 255 to 800.
I insert a column bind::odk-length and make length 800 for he text fields(
they are over 8 fields).
I use the online converter to turn XLS to XML.
from there I insert xmlns:odk="http://www.opendatakit.org/xforms" and
change all odk-length with odk:length.
When I run the downloaded converter I get an error Parsing form...
XML Syntax Error at Line: 1, Column: 5!
org.xmlpull.v1.XmlPullParserException: PI must not start with xml
(position:unknown xm@1:5 in java.io.InputStreamReader@7c913f37)

I wonder what the problem could be.
I have attached the downloaded XML file
Any help will be much appreciated
N.B Minus the increase in the text length the form works fine

Hi Ayoub,

This sounds like a UTF format, line break, or XML syntax issue. What
have you tried so far?

Ohh Thanks Yaw.
I solved the issue
I was using windows notepad to edit the xml. I think it was adding
something illegal
so i downloaded notepad++ and editing the xml from there worked like magic

Thanks again for the good work Yaw.
