Raw HTML Editing In Template

This is now available. I am crossing my fingers, and adding a Google Sitemap to my blog.

Here is the relevant portion of the template (details omitted, to prevent the old post / sidebar alignment problem.

<meta content='.......' name='description'/>
<meta content='.......' name='keywords'/>
<META content='.......' name='verify-v1'/>

So far, it's been accepted by the Google Sitemap wizard. Plus, I did a View - Page Source in Firefox, and the new meta records seem to parse properly.
You have added a Sitemap to http://bloggerstatusforrealbeta.blogspot.com/. Reports may take several hours to update. Thank you for your patience!

(Edit 8/30 21:45): Close, but no cigar. The Atom feed looks great, from Sage. But, looking at my Google Webmasters display, I see
Line: 1 Incorrect namespace
Your Sitemap or Sitemap index file doesn't properly declare the namespace. [?] Tag:
Line: 1 URL not allowed
This url is not allowed for a Sitemap at this location. [?] Url:
Line: 1 URL not allowed
This url is not allowed for a Sitemap at this location. [?] Url:

More work tomorrow. :(

I get the same stuff as u; namespace, XML, URL not allowed... so many errors since beta- how do I fix them?

I'm banging my head against my desk over here. I followed your steps over at The Real Blogger Status for Publicising Your Blog and Adding a Google Sitemap to Your Blog... but hit a dead end with the Site Feed URL. Google says my URL is not associated with my blog in any way, shape or form.

All I'm looking for, like the rest of us, is a little exposure.

Any ideas there, Chuck?

Drat! I thought switching to RSS would solve my problem, which it did for a few days, then I got this message too.

Google owns sitemaps, google owns beta, how hard can it be!

Blogger Beta brings me almost the same problems. It seems that Blogger is the most buggy google service currently.
