XML sitemaps readable by Yahoo & Co.?

    I just submitted my xml sitemap (3000+ pages, mostly forum posts) to Google, but was wondering if Yahoo, Ask, and MSN can also use this sitemap for indexing (by linking to sitemap.xml from the main site)? Sorry if this is a stupid question, I'm not particularly computer-literate!

    Hi!

    Yahoo is not really known, but officially they don't support the Google Xml Sitemaps format. MSN does the same - officially - but they read the xml sitemaps files and crawl the links. :)

    Many thanks for that :) - much appreciated (not that I really *need* it in Yahoo, because for some reason, Yahoo loves me, but it would still be nice to have forum posts indexed!)

    I just tried that site and it needs a bit of work. It picks up javascript links and only crawls 1 level deep by the looks of it.
