Please can you help me with a problem? I am getting the following error when I submit a sitemap on Google Webmaster Tools:

Hello,

sitemap.xml file on your server doesn't look the same as the one you quoted in message, you need to reupload the file (or probably it was overwritten by some other script on your site).
