hi, Alex, I just read your email. For what I can see, you are using a SEF component. It's generating some urls with the the symbol "?" on it. Eg.
http://www.yourdomain.com/category/part1-?-part2.html

This is not a good practice. Maybe you should check your SEF component to exclude or replace this symbol from your urls.

Hi, I also noticed bad urls with the simbol "&" on some sef urls. This should be excluded or replaced as well.

YES! YES! YES! Bingo! You are the best! We are on the right way.

Now, begining from tomorow i will try to generate other's sitemaps, but what we can do if i have in one section more/or allmost 10000 items(link's)?

How can't be divided automated, for one section? Because i work to the content and the number of item's go up(just in one section).

Now there is one example:
index.php?option=com_xmap&sitemap=4&view=xml&no_html=1

Number of links 9534

Xmap do not generate sitemap with this many link's. This example is for othermenu, i dit not divide this just for one section.
