The markup in the document preceding the root element must be well formed


Error : The markup in the document preceding the root element must be well-formed. How do I correct it ?

I have just started using eclipse and am building myfirstapp as per the instructions on developer.android.com.

<<<<<<< Original <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="com.example.myfirstapp" android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0" > <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="8" android:targetSdkVersion="21" /> <application android:allowBackup="true" android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher" android:label="@string/app_name" android:theme="@style/AppTheme" > <activity android:name=".MainActivity" android:label="@string/app_name" > <intent-filter> <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" /> <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" /> </intent-filter> </activity> <activity android:name=".DisplayMessageActivity" android:label="@string/title_activity_display_message" android:parentActivityName="com.example.myFirstApp.MainActivity" > <meta-data android:name="android.support.PARENT_ACTIVITY" android:value="com.example.myFirstApp.MainActivity" /> </activity> </application> </manifest> ======= <manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" > <application> <activity android:name="com.example.myfirstapp.DisplayMessageActivity" android:label="@string/title_activity_display_message" android:parentActivityName="com.example.myfirstapp.MainActivity"> <meta-data android:name="android.support.PARENT_ACTIVITY" android:value="com.example.myfirstapp.MainActivity" /> </activity> </application> </manifest> >>>>>>> Added


You need to remove the '<<<<<<< Original', the '=======', and the '>>>>>>> Added'. Those were most likely put there by a merge tool.

Make sure you keep the '' at the top of the file. For the rest, I don't know which parts from the original you want (the part at the top) and your new entries (below the '=======').
