    Hi there,
    Im using SEO Yoast 1.4.7 and WP version 3.5.1.
    I've been trying to setup the sitemap_index.xml file with Google Webmaster Tools but i'm recieving the following error:
    "Your Sitemap appears to be an HTML page. Please use a supported sitemap format instead."
    I tried searching the web but couldn't find a solution for this issue, just alot of people wondering the same thing.
    What am I doing wrong here?

    The website is: http://www.helenkdesigns.co.il

    Thank you
    Ofer

    I just realized that I get an error when i try reading the xml file generated by Yoast.
    "sitemap_index.xml error on line 8 at column 32: Entity 'raquo' not defined Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error"

    I dont understand why thats happening either.
