You could use a program like Oxygen, or even just a web tool like
http://www.w3schools.com/xml/xml_validator.asp to check for things like
unclosed tags.

> Good afternoon,
> I've been tasked with figuring out why a simple EAD file fails to be
> imported into ArchivesSpace. I suspect it's an error with the XML file's
> formatting, such as a missing tag, but I don't know enough about the file
> type to verify it by eye. I thought I'd ask if there's any tool archivists
> use to verify that their EAD files are correct. When imported into
> ArchivesSpace, the job fails and there is an empty error log; I don't have
> anything else to go on, unfortunately.
> Thank you very much for your time,
