XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
« on: May 20, 2010, 10:46:05 AM »
Hi There,

I've noticed that google webmaster doesn't crawl my sitemap.xml due to error. No issue with the mobilesitemap.xml and ror.xml

When I browse the http://www.info4iphone.com/sitemap.xml I can see this message instead of showing the sitemap.

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: http://www.info4iphone.com/sitemap.xml
Line Number 59, Column 71:       <loc>http://www.info4iphone.com/store/index.php?mode=All&search=apple+iphone</loc>
----------------------------------------------------------------------^

Any ideas why it happen ?

Currrently using this version.

Standalone Sitemap Generator (PHP) v3.0, 2009-05-19 .. let me try and upgrade it to version 4.0 and see is there any difference.

Everything is working well now, I'm not sure why the previous version giving such error and it happen only after few runs to generate new sitemap.

Oh well.. stick to the new version then.
