sitemap.xml      Pending      Sitemap            11/08/2011

This is actually a known bug with Bing where XML sitemaps are submitted and are stuck with the "pending" notification state even through they have been properly submitted.  Bing is supposed to be working on this one, yet I have yet to see anything in regards to a fix.

Does that mean the sitemap won't work or its just an interface level error
Matthew Nguyen

From what I understand, it is an interface issue.
