I am converting a gff containing information regarding genes of my
interest, it may come from there. There were a few '' characters which I
removed and tried again. Getting the same error again.

The error is report while reading entry AT0200m01B1.GI0EXFF02C9LQB, I have
included here this and the next entries. Looking at sequence length, I
find out there are some strange illumina nextgen sequence quality
characters which should not be there.

AT0200m01B1.GI0EXFF02C9LQB      MGA     gene    2       151     50      -
ote=GeneStatus:lack 3'
AT0200m01B1.GI0EXFF02C9LQB      MGA     gene    158     11305   9       +
ote=GeneStatus:lack 3'

I will try removing them and re-run the script to produce the xml,
hopefully this should resolve the error.
