[patch-included] Sitemaps: XML parser complains about invalid characters (1 post)

    Description of the issue:
    The sitemap feature did not work, Google's sitemap validator was complaining about an invalid format and Google Chrome's integrated XML Parser was also complaining about illegal characters.
    After some investigation I realized that this had to do with the HTTP Status header sent by WordPress SEO. I just removed that line and it worked like it is supposed to. So, if you are experiencing the same issue applying the following patch might help: click.
    Why does WP SEO send a status header? Seems to be rather pointless to me.
