Googe News Sitemap
The <genres> tag has an invalid value (1 post)

    I am getting this error message:

    Invalid news genre
    The <genres> tag has an invalid value. You can find acceptable values for this tag here. Note that values should always be in English. Once you update the values, please resubmit your Sitemap.

    I am using WordPress 3.0 and I have treble checked everything. I can find nothing wrong.

    The sitemap looks like this:


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9" xmlns:n="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap-news/0.9">

    I've changed the name and URL of my site to XXXXX for privacy. Any ideas what's wrong?
