Approval page parsing error for multiple line fields

Hi Folks,


In our instance, we have some approval pages setup and whenever we try to include a long text field in the approval page AND something is in that text field, we get the error below. Any thoughts?


error on line 7 at column 1649: PCDATA invalid Char value 20


Many thanks!


All the best,



Hi Peter,


  This is an XML error probablly coming from the browser and not from salesforce.  It could be that your VF page's XML is corrupted in some way (perhaps edited by hand?).    I suggest using your browser debug tool to inspect line 7 and see if you get any clues from that.  Another thing to try is creating a new VF page and copying over your problem page, chunk by chunk, to see if you can isolate the offending markup.



Kind Regards,
