Bing SEO Sitemap Error

When submitting my sitemap URL to Bing, I get the following error:

HTTP code: 200
Severity: Error Line: 5 Position: 25 Message: The 'http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9:changefreq' element is invalid - The value 'Weekly' is invalid according to its datatype 'http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9:tChangeFreq' - The Enumeration constraint failed.

Maybe the value 'Weekly' should be 'weekly', with a lower case 'w'?

It worked! Thank you very much! I'm looking forward to the next version.

In the meantime, I'll be working on making the Image names more search engine friendly, so that they appear in Google and Bing images. Currently, the image names are just numeric which is meaningless to Google and Bing; they are more concerned with the name of the image then look at the alt attribute for keyword relevance.

Another thing that needs done is the title needs to include the category and subcategories. If you look at Google's SEO Guide, the very first thing it mentions is the title of the page. I feel that this is one of the most important ranking components of SEO. If no one else jumps on this, then I will. It's no good to have a site if you can't be found. It's like having a book in the library without listing it in the computer or index.
