    Yup, we have a bug entry to get the error reporting in there. Chris just found where the syntax error was in the files that was causing the problem.

      The silent error should be taken care of in the next release for the internal XML conversion formats. Unfortunately, we won't be able to support parsing <!DOCTYPE>. Would it be an option to create an external conversion which either removes this node, or adds a Comment (<!-- to -->) around it? This would allow our parser, or the BC3 "XML Sorted and Tidied" or "XML Sorted" format to work.

      If you would like to continue troubleshooting the BC3 method of using "XML Tidied" (Helpers\HtmlTidy\XML_tidied.bat) we can do this, too. On my test system, this format works for both local and sftp comparisons with the files you sent in, and can open with the <!DOCTYPE> node. This format can be installed for BC3 or BC4.

        One more update with good news: talking more with the developers and we should be able to handle simple DOCTYPE cases like this one where it references a file. So, hopefully, we'll get our internal conversion working with files like this.

        Handling the more complex DOCTYPE parsing is likely still outside the scope of what we could support, but we should be able to get files like this comparing without throwing an error.

          I still can not get the internal Xml tidy option to work when my files start from
          <!DOCTYPE ... >
          Is there a workaround short of deleting that line on both sides?

            Thanks for the report/update. We'll look into why this still isn't quite working.

              This should be working in the next release.

                Confirmed. Works as expected in 17905.
