The error is that you have a space between the '<?' and the processing
instruction target. It should be

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

When fixing this you will run into a new problem though, as the XML
declaration is only allowed at the start of a document. This means that
you'll have to delete or move the comment declaration at the start of
the document.

Your prolog should look something like:

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
