XMLWTF?

We were unable to save your template. Please correct the error below, and submit your template again.

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly. XML error message: The document type declaration for root element type "html" must end with '>'.

oh for the love of all that's bloggy and good - if i see this message one more time, i'm going to burst at the bloggy seams. i do the google. i do the research. i even know how to do some weensy coding. i know everything has to end with a '>'. my eyes are glazing over just looking for the missing '>'. i've deleted all my beloved widgets knowing i can just make them again. i started a 'test' blank canvas of a blog to try out some of the wicked cool new templates i found, so as not to risk losing any of the sheer literary genius that exists in this little space on the web.

and still.
i get that message.
this rearrange could take longer than planned.

oh girl, i feel your pain. reading that gives me flashbacks. damn you, blogger for not having more templates!!

yeah, i dealt with that same error among others.

i wish too blogger had more templates. i went through a bunch that i found and finally found a simple 3 column template and hacked it to death to get it right.

what kind of template are you trying to change to?

Is this anything like when you attack, I mean "rearrange" your house? Should I come over and help carry font up from the basement?

Miss you! Wassup?
