Google Webmaster Says-"your Sitemap Appears To Be An Html Page."

    Last month i have started my new blog http://h2cweb.net submitted for Google indexing. Google indexed very well. But few days later i turned on my blog to a multisite. Now my multisite's sitemap indexed by Google webmaster tools but when i tried to submit new sitemap.xml then webmaster tools shows an error message and said that- "Your Sitemap appears to be an HTML page. Please use a supported sitemap format instead."

    Can anyone please help me to solve it out. I will grateful to you. Thanks in advance.

    since that's just a list of all the sitemaps, you could just submit each sitemap on that list individually.

    Use different tools to create sitemaps. I also had the same errors in WordPress but soon got resolved, when i switched to other plugins.
