Hi, I am currently using the sitemap builder of SiteMapBuilder NET and notice that the style of the format is OPPOSITE that which is produced from the Soft Plus GSite CrawlerGSoft.

ie Text by one is xml on the other and vice versa

Anone else had any similar experiences?

AM I right in thinking that the following is a TEXT sitemap...

Sitemap URL Last modification date Change freq. Priority
http://www.example.com/ 2008-07-01T18:20:56+00:00 daily 1.00
http://www.example.com/contact-reply.htm 2008-07-01T18:20:56+00:00 monthly 0.50

and this is an XML Sitemap

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
- <!-- Google Site Map File Generated by sitemapbuilder.net Sun, 18 Jan 2009 17:59:27 GMT
- <urlset xmlns="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap/0.84">
- <url>

OR is the latter just the coding behind the former?

Or am I going Gaga?

Sitemaps can be created using txt files or xml files.
Most people who use sitemaps only care about getting their pages indexed. Text and XML will have near identical results with meeting that goal.
