Hmm, it seems as though the XML importer is picking up the
'whitespace' - i.e. the 'indentation' characters - as content, e.g.
if you have:
then it is incorrectly picking up the spacing character(s) in front
of the <Definition> as content, instead of ignoring them. I'm not
sure why, it shouldn't be doing this (we'll have a look at why it's
happening), but a temporary workaround, if possible, is to modify
the XML to be imported to remove the extra spacing, e.g. have it all
on one line per entry:
