Error: /etc/fonts/fonts.conf file?


Hey all,
In my slack-current system, when I go to: /etc/fonts/font.conf and try to read/open the font.conf file it reports this :

"XML Parsing error" "fatal parsing error: the document is not in the correct file format in line 23, column 31"

Does anyone know how to fix this or would someone be so kind and post their /etc/fonts/font.conf file off of slack-9 or current?

Thanks for any replies, Frank

Here's the first part of my /etc/fonts/fonts.conf from my slackware 9.0 box:
Code:
      1 <?xml version="1.0"?>
      2 <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
      3 <!-- /etc/fonts.conf file to configure system font access -->
      4 <fontconfig>
      5
      6 <!--
      7         The intent of this standard configuration file is to be adequate for
      8         most environments.  If you have a reasonably normal environment and
      9         have found problems with this configuration, they are probably
     10         things that others will also want fixed.  Please send any suggested
     11         changes to fonts@xfree86.org so that future releases can include
     12         such changes.
     13
     14         Note that the normal 'make install' procedure for XFree86 is to
     15         replace any existing fonts.conf file with the new version.  Place
     16         any local customizations in local.conf which this file references.

Edit: Oh, I guess you want the whole thing since you can't see yours, so:

<fontconfig>
