@apulikkal, is it an issue with a single device, or is it an issue with multiple devices?

We had a similar issue a week ago, and It was caused by third party keyboard (a.i. free type) because bold style was applied to the font .
And we solved the issue by opening the xml in notepad and deleting the extra characters in the relevant answers.
Try to open the xml in chrome and it will display an error with the characters causing it.
