When you paste the error urls into the browser, do they work - exactly as is, with absolutely no changes made by either your browser or your server?

yes they do

It sounds like the error is Google's, then -- and they do sometimes have bugs in this area. Just to be sure of all possibilities, you should probably validate the XML syntax too, not just the reported bad urls:

I put the url into the "Syntax-check your XML File - IE Only" validator and it came up with a blank page. Does that mean it is okay?
The same thing happened when i used their "example" URL as well.

I doubt that means OK - probably a temporary glitch. For now I'd use a search engine to find another XML validator.

Again, thanks Tedster,
Just for everyones info, the problem turned out to be some special unicode causing the error?
Think it may have been caused by copying and pasting product titles from (word or other)documents into the shopping cart system.
So I'll now ensure i wash any product titles in notepad first.
