B.17.2.2. Unterminated attribute

Symptom
The following error occurs:
error: (name_of_guest.xml):2: Unescaped '<' not allowed in attributes values
<name>name_of_guest</name>
--^
Investigation
This snippet of a guest's XML file contains an unterminated element attribute value:
<domain type='kvm>
<name>name_of_guest</name>
In this case, 'kvm' is missing a second quotation mark. Strings of attribute values, such as quotation marks and apostrophes, must be opened and closed, similar to XML start and end tags.
Solution
Correctly open and close all attribute value strings.
