Ok, I now have 10 crawl errors, when I resubmitted my latest sitemap.

Each crawl error returns a 404, file not found

These are old urls, I changed them with a redirect 301 command to a valid url

and then I resubmitted the new and improved sitemap

Is that aok?

It sounds OK.

Verify it is OK by using the Live HTTP Headers for Firefox extension.

It lets you check out the page header information which is not normally shown to the public. This way you can see if a 200 status code is being delivered or if a 301 redirect to a 404 error code is being returned.

You can also use this webpage to see the headers that are returned for your webpage: [rexswain.com...]

Thank you for the web to see the headers, now I have a problem here

let's see that one of my headers looks like this:

<li><a·title="Widget Contraptions"·href="widgetcontrap.html">Wedding·(LF)
(HT,HT,HT,HT)contrapations</a></li>(LF)

My question is, should not the "a title" be the same as href="widgetcontraptions"?

thank you

The href is the url you are going to, the title is for usability/seo purposes. Most people don't even bother to include the title and just use the anchor text by itself.
