Can't open my sitemap.xml in the browser ! ! !

    I used a sitemap generator to create a sitemap.xml for my site. When I have the browser open and I open the sitemap.xml from within my computer, the browser opens it, BUT if I upload it to my server and then typein the path, I get the following message:

    (The XML page cannot be displayed
    Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The system cannot locate the object specified. )

    I don't understand why ! ! I had actually created this file for Google Sitemaps and its up in my account, But I also put a link for it on my site and its not loading from there.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Ok here is the url to the sitemap I created and uploaded.

    perfumebazar.com/sitemap.xml

    Again, if I have the browser open and if I >File>Open this file from my computer, it opens just fine. But it won't open through the url ! ! but if you "view > source" you can see the coding and all, but just won't show in the browser.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Don't worry about it :)

    It's just the stylesheet which the browser is looking for. Automated readers (like Google) don't use the stylesheet, it's just used to make the sitemap file look "nice" when viewed in a browser. If you want to use it, just copy site stylesheet file to your server as well.
