Tutorial 2: RSS feed error

I am trying to create a RSS feed following the instructions in the second tutorial. When I try to access it via: http://localhost/mysite/news/rss (my site being "holybasil"), I get the error:

"[Warning] Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/holybasil/mysite/code/HomePage.php:25)
GET /holybasil/news/rss

Line 188 in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/holybasil/sapphire/api/RSSFeed.php

This is what my ArticleHolder.php looks like:

* Defines the ArticleHolder page type
class ArticleHolder extends Page {
static $db = array(
static $has_one = array(
static $icon = "themes/canvas/images/treeicons/news";
static $allowed_children = array('ArticlePage');

class ArticleHolder_Controller extends Page_Controller {

function rss() {
$rss = new RSSFeed($this->Children(), $this->Link(), "The coolest news around");



Any help would be appreciated,

PS: I've tried Firefox 3 and Safari and I get the same error.

...... (output started at .../mysite/code/HomePage.php:25)

Output started at HomePage sounds like you have an echo or some whitespace or something else which is outputting content on line 25. Make sure you have removed all your whitespace after the ?> in that file

Thanks for the quick response. Following your suggestion, I got the RSS feed to work.

Much appreciated,
