Might be an invalid character that succeed to be written but not read

Found a solution here: http://info.tsachev.org/2009/05/skipping-invalid-xml-character-with.html

We can implement a FilterReader before the string gets into the XMLStreamReader. That can be done at the level of the GephiReader in ProjectAPI module.
