Hi Theo,

Opening the file content.xml in Firefox shows a heading thus:

XML Parsing Error: duplicate attribute
Location: file:///home/theo/junk/repair/baddailyturnover/content.xml
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.

Kind regards
