XML validation error
« on: March 16, 2008, 08:12:07 AM »
Hi All,

I own the standalone generator. I just set up a new site (http://www.carladaly.co.uk) and planning to use it there as well. However before that I ran the free online generator. The sitemaps used to have been generated correctly however in the validation window I see this:

Schema validating with XSV 3.1-1 of 2007/12/11 16:20:05

Anybody can shed some light?

Noticed that the text is unclear, the sitemaps are generated correctly, but i still see the xml validation error mentioned.

Thanks for the feedback.

It was in the xml validation window. I had some errors on the site when I ran it first so I got this error and no sitemap generated. I fixed the error and I got the sitemaps generated, but still saw the error. Perhaps it was in the browser cache or similar.
