I have tried repeatedly to export and xml file of my website nicoleathome.com.  And tried repeatedly to upload the file to Wordpress.  I have talked to support on Wordpress who have looked at the file and reported it to be corrupted.  How do I fix this? I have migrated blogs on other platforms before without a hitch. What is going wrong here? 
best wishes, and thank you for your help.

Anyone out there? Is there an actual support person who can help with this?   I realize blogger is a free service, but I am working in good faith here.  Ann

Yes, I exported a xml file exactly as instructed.  what I posted here is a screenshot of the xml file that wordpress says contains the code that is corrupting the file.  I have already done all the reading and homework on this issue--hence the question to the forum. is there a person who can help me?  I keep having to lead each and every person down the same troubleshooting path I have already taken.

Hi Nigel, 

that is what I finally concluded.  They just do not know how to help people.  Their first importer failed, but they did not offer the readily available alternative, which worked perfectly.  I might quibble that they lost the metadata for all the photos, but it does work, commenting and all. 
Thank you for your interest.  I wrote up the solution so that others might benefit.
