Is there a bug that causes issues when copy/pasting text from Adobe Illustrator to an XML document in Flex Builder? I finished the work so far, closed Flex. Then I re-opened and only the following tag correctly displays: <mx:Label id="boldGreenQuestionID" text="{siteData.lastResult.page.boldGreenQuestion}". Do I have a syntax issue? I get no errors, and like I said, it was fine.

The following code is my XML file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<content>
            <page>
            
                  <headline>Browse this month's creative line.</headline>
                  
                  <headlinePar>
In this economy you are probably balancing dozens of strategies with detailed timelines and limited resources.
Consumers need to be convinced more than ever that your product is a great value.
Thats why its never been more important to discover the perfect creative solution  its time to find an agency that brings those solutions to you!

The MDI Creative Outlet is a new online tool that makes the creative process simple for your marketing team.
Just log on at any time to view various creative options that have been designed specifically for your company.
Browse by month and by product and request estimates based on your desired quantity. </headlinePar>

                  <boldGreenQuestion>Why keep using hand-me-down creative?</boldGreenQuestion>
                  
                  <lastSentence>Get brand new pieces for the same cost at the MDI Creative Outlet.</lastSentence>
