I am using Siemapper Version5.5 build 179.
Using it to "create a sitemap" after a scan I am only given the option of saving as an htm / html file.
Viewing the created file via Firebug, in Firefox confirms it is an XHTML format.
Unforyunately this does not seem to be anacceptable format for the genius at Google, who seem to suggest XML and amiriad of others.
Can someone please advise how I can get past the "unsupported file format" message when trying to submit to big brother ... Google.

Hi Carlo,
Look in the directory that you saved your site map. There should be an xml and html version in there.:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
