    I need a program that will help me preview the layout of a xml page before I upload it to blogger. It's a little bit risky each time to change my blog's template and preview it though blogger.
    What happens if someone saves/uploads it incomplete by mistake? :eek:

    XML is just tags, it means nothing alone. Are you using XSLT?

    I'm sorry but I'm new to all of these. :eek:
    I was wondering what kind of program is used by blogger in order to preview xml pages before the final upload. I cannot afford to lose or to destroy my blog by uploading an incomplete template.
    I have downloaded some new blogger templates and I want to experiment a little bit with their xml pages but I want to preview their layout first.

    I have already downloaded many templates. I only need to find a program to preview then when I change their layout before uploading them to Blogger.

    Blogger must use its own method for parsing the XML, so I really can't help you there.

    You could always make a second blog as a "dummy blog" where you test out all your edits, before applying them to the actual blog.
    Blogger lets you make multiple blogs under the same account name.

    I'm a newbie in blogging and I got confused with Etomite CMS and so I gave up.

    But I managed to create a new blog template after all, and previewed it at my own risk using Blogger and I got a xml error message:

    "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 element type "div" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "

    Now I'm trying to solve it. I cannot find where the end-tag is missing :(
    Any ideas how to find it?
