Issue reading XML data

I am getting error while reading following XML in XML generator. Error message
“Failure: null, Reason: Error occurred while validating the XML, Resolution: Please provide a valid XML”

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> EUR Project Code changed 3.53 USD 242.11 INR 3.03 EUR

If you are putting this in the template, you need to put it in the right xml format.

Example:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
< root >
EUR Project Code changed 3.53 USD 242.11 INR 3.03 EUR
< /root >
