Q.  How can I check the syntax of an XML file?

A.  Use the xmllint command.  Like this:

xmllint --noout <your-file.xml>
The "--noout" option requests no output if everything is OK. This command is in the libxml2 package in RedHat/Fedora/CentOS I learned about this command at my local LUG last night.
