Hi experts:
I am writing an application for a client to allow them to create RSS feeds.  I would like to integrate the validation of the feeds. Usually to validate, I would go to and type in the URL.  I'd like to make this "seamless" for the client by just invoking the service and capturing any errors generated.  I am writing in coldfusion and after looking at the documentation for w3c, I came up with this:

<cfinvoke webservice="" method="post" result="MyReturnVar">
 <cfinvokeargument name="url" value="">
 <cfinvokeargument name="output" value="soap12">

I don't know what method to actually use.  Here is a link to the documentation:

When I run this, I get an error:
Could not generate stub objects for web service invocation. Name: WSDL: WSDLException (at /html): faultCode=INVALID_WSDL: Expected element '{}definitions'.: It is recommended that you use a web browser to retrieve and examine the requested WSDL document for correctness. If the requested WSDL document can't be retrieved or it is dynamically generated, it is likely that the target web service has programming errors.

Any idea what might be gong on and how I can invoke this?
