Warning messages on Validate
« on: August 14, 2012, 09:41:03 AM »
Hi. Good Day.

I have just upgraded to ver 6.0 and run the crawler again.
When I check the result using the validator I get these warnings:

1. Missing "charset" attribute for
"text/xml" document.
2. No DOCTYPE found! Checking XML syntax only.

Do I need to worry about these warnings? If so, how to fix these?

Thank you in advance.

Hello,

sitemap is correct, since sitemaps specs to not contain DOCTYPE and charset:

Charset attribute is not required according to sitemap protocol.
