Topic: "Cannot Parse Gallery XML" in IE8

Help! I hate to do this, but I've searched and searched on here, and tried several things and I'm afraid I'm messing things up more as I go along.  This gallery did work on IE8 last week (I'm 98% positive), but today it won't parse the xml.  I did make some changes to it, but I do not see where I made the errors!  Works great in FF and Safari. Have been clearing caches of all as I check.

Tried viewing the xml through IE8 browser as suggestd,  and it says this:
Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

End tag 'font' does not match the start tag 'caption'. Error processing resource 'http://www.keepsakequilting.com/flash/gal...
<caption><![CDATA[<font size="18"><![CDATA[Floral Squares 31.5 x 31.5  $180   #8135 ]]></font>]]...

but I don't see where the font tag doesn't match...
(added) - also, if I look at the xml in FF it says this at top:"This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below." but doesn't show any specifics errors that I see.

I am posting my xml below, can someone please see what is bugging IE?  I've spent a LOT of time trying to figure out what changed and broke, and I need to get this up real soon (early next week), but it needs to display in IE...
Thanks SO MUCH in advance for any help you can give me!!

Thank you for responding -- I just re-built it from scratch, copying over one piece at a time and it works fine, now. Thanks - no idea what the problem was.  Doncha just love that. lol
