Google says my sitemap has errors

My sitemap validates using the validation tool but it has errors according to google. Here's a link to it: [external links are visible to admins only]

Thought I better include the errors:

Line:
 14020
 Parsing error
We were unable to read your Sitemap. It may contain an entry we are unable to recognize. Please validate your Sitemap before resubmitting.    [?]   
Line:
 14020
 Invalid date
An invalid date was found. Please fix the date or formatting before resubmitting.    [?]  Parent tag:
Tag:
Value:  url

Hello,

as I see, you have some html code appended to the bottom of xml sitemap: <font color="white">...
You should re-generate sitemap (and make sure that you do not modify it manually).

Found the problem. I had turned on a global footer for the server.

Thanks,
Steve
