    Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure that all XML elements are closed properly. XML error message: Open quote is expected for attribute “{1}” associated with an element type “onLoad”.

    Error 500

    Hi Ric,

    Actually I’ve tried several times, error is the following:

    Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure that all XML elements are closed properly. XML error message: Open quote is expected for attribute “{1}” associated with an element type “onLoad”.
    Error 500

    Body tags gets approved, the script itself blogger is complaining about.

    Thanks for replying so quickly (:

    • Richie Sajan says:

      The error is rather silly, sorry I didn’t get it the first time. After pasting the code in blogger, just replace the single quotes (‘) for the onLoad parameter in the body tag with apostrophe (unicode: U+0027). For this just type it out using your keyboard, nothing much.

      The problem is that as you copy paste the apostrophe gets parsed into quotes (U+2018 and U+2019.)

      Just try it out and let me know.
