Issues:
1) The tag "<Physical Address " where attributes where expected.
2) The tag name should be just one word "Physical_address".

The solution was to:
1) Put an underscore on the tag "<Physical_Address" to have a one word tag.
2) Move that tag as a "sub-tag" of "<Blah_ABC_Decision_Info>", that implied:
2.1) Remove the "/" from the line [Requestor_Transaction_Amount="03500"/>]
(You only have to put the "/" to indicate that you are closing the tag and there is not further "sub-tags" underneath.)
2.2) Set a "sub-tag" by moving "<Physical_Address" between [Requestor_Transaction_Amount="03500">] and [</Consumer_Information>].

What I did to find the issues quickly rather than analyze your code, was:
1) Copy your original XML into a text file with .xml extension,
2) Open that file up with Internet Explorer browser. It immediately told me where the problem was, however, the message just said that there was an invalid character and the position where the problem appeared. I applied the changes described above and it was able to open up the file.

A good way to learn how to create XML files is here: http://www.w3schools.com/xml/xml_whatis.asp

I'm not adding more to what other guys already replied.

Cheers!

That makes sense Jorge. I wonder what's wrong with the original though.

Anyone see what's wrong with this XML? I have to be able to intelligently
tell the provider.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Blah_ABC_Response>
<Blah_ABC_Decision_Info>
<Consumer_Information
First_Name="JOHN"
Last_Name="ISNER"
<Physical Address
Address_Line_1="1 TENNIS DR "
Address_Line_2=""
Address_City="WARREN"
Address_State_Code="MI"
Address_Postal_Code="49802"/>
Birth_Date="1985-01-01"
Home_Telephone_Number="5869831111"
Requestor_Transaction_Amount="03500"/>
</Consumer_Information>
</Blah_ABC_Decision_Info>
</Blah_ABC_Response>

Is it that Address_Postal_Code and Requestor_Transaction_Amount both have
ending brackets? I removed the one after Address_Postal_Code, but I
received
the same error in the same place.

Thanks!
