Copying in the default paleo.views.xml works without error. I do not know why though. There is nothing before the
on my customized forms. I have even tried copying the first few lines over from the default form and the same error came up. I am using Notepad to edit my xml file. There is no BOM at the beginning.
It seems like the only thing left to do is to just recreate my forms. Thank you very much for your help.
