Problem with xml format from Jira export

I've made an xml export from a issue search in Jira OnDemand.
When I try to open the xml file I get an error saying that it is not proper xml-format.

I tried an online XML validator and got the error:

7: 1 Content is not allowed in prolog.

Row 7 is this row:
-<rss version="0.92">

Can someone give me a hint on what to do?
Kind regards,

Have you treid to clean it up manually or does it import correctly into a fresh local JIRA instance for test?
