CDATA - The document appears to be corrupted and cannot be loaded

If a document has custom xml that contains a CDATA section, then loading the document will throw a FileCorruptedException. The following code can be used to duplicate the problem:


// using Aspose.Words for .NET v16.7.0.0
var doc = new Document();
doc.CustomXmlParts.Add(new CustomXmlPart { Id = Guid.NewGuid().ToString(), Data = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(@"") });
var fn = Path.Combine(Path.GetTempPath(), “cdata.xml”);
doc.Save(fn, SaveFormat.FlatOpc);

// opening the document will throw the following exception:
//Aspose.Words.FileCorruptedException: The document appears to be corrupted and cannot be loaded. —>System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Specified argument was out of the range of valid values.
//Parameter name: Unexpected XML event type: CDATA
