Opening the file content.xml in Firefox shows a heading thus:
XML Parsing Error: duplicate attribute
Line Number 2, Column 734593:
That sounds like the case (1) I have described.
The line that follows, in red, is more than 15 pages long when copied
and pasted to a text document, which itself is 974 pages long.
When previewed in Firefox, the file is converted to html, and in Firefox
it can be seen that the affected line seems to be all the entries at the
start of the file relating to "style", but I wouldn't know where to look
for the error. I tried deleting that line but that didn't work!!
Can you see the error mark in Firefox? Firefox draws a dashed line and
at the end of that line is a little triangle pointing to the error. But
your document is really huge and Firefox might be unable to cope it.
Perhaps you can estimate where 734593 characters end?
When you reach the place of the error, you should see some text twice.
It will be a little bit before and after the error place. Remember that
text and search for it in the editor. That are the "duplicate attribute"
Firefox named as parsing error. In the editor delete one of them. Save
the file and reopen it in Firefox and let Firefox show you the next
error. It is very likely, that the error at place character 734593 is
not the only error and you will have to loop several times.
[I hope, all repair tries are made on a copy!]
Another idea you can try: Take a document of the same kind, which has no
data and unzip it the same way. Then copy that part of the broken
content.xml, which contains the data, and replace the corresponding part
of the new file with it. That will loose all formatting, but might
recover the pure data.
