This is not a well-formed document and the last line should (probably) be:

</FooBar> instead of <FooBar/>

One of the problems with XML parsers (rather like compilers) is that it can
be quite difficult to produce error messages that tell you precisely what
is wrong. So I can't tell you *why* you got this message, but most error
messages are 'somewhere near' the error.

Sometimes it can be helpful to run more than one parser because they often
give different clues.
