I'm trying to create my own rss feeds instead of use a generator and this is how far i got.

http://www.freewebs.com/rollingdice/rss.xml

If you go there you'll see that is says:
XML Parsing Error: unclosed token
Location: http://www.freewebs.com/rollingdice/rss.xml
Line Number 1, Column 1:<!--xml version="1.0"?>

In the xml file i don't have it as <!--xml i have it as <?xml. I don't know what i'm doing wrong because i've used the examples from w3schools and many other well known websites. I've tried running it through the feed validater and it said the same thing. If someone can help me or push me in the right direction that would be great

These sites (along with a handful of others) were sitting there on the first page of results when I googled "how to make an rss feed".

The source tells me your file rendered the first line as "<!--xml version="1.0"?>". It's supposed to be "<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>" (encoding optional).

Addendum: It might be that freewebs won't render your file properly. I advise you to sign up for hosting at freehostia, or get a (cheap) paid hosting site. I can recommend Aldarhawk's service, he's a member of this site and offers very, very sharply priced hosting.

Well i've already been to the pages that have been recommended and actually the beginning of my file i got right from w3schools website. I considered that freewebs might not render my file so i saved the file to my desktop and opened it and still got an error. Also the feed validator says i have an error as well, so i don't believe the host is the problem. I also stated that even though it shows <! i have it as <? so i don't know why it keeps changing, others have posted the same thing but the replies don't get very far. At least i got some replies heh but i still don't believe the question is answered.

ulmb.com is a great free host. Very non-intrusive and VERY functional. Love it, love it, love it. And I think spy answered your question...

Copy and paste is not a good thing unless you know how it works. Look through w3schools much better before citing it as a source of your problem.
