I was trying to submit my sitemap to google webmaster tools.
it returns the following error :
Sitemap is HTML
Your Sitemap appears to be an HTML page. Please use a supported sitemap format instead.
Any way to fix it ?

Sitemaps need to be XML.
You could use a generator to create a sitemap: http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/
Or a plugin, if you are using WordPress or some other CMS: http://wordpress.org/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/

From the plugin's support
Google Webmaster Tools reports "Sitemap is in HTML format"
That happens from time to time and is an issue in Google Webmaster Tools. Try to resubmit your sitemap and wait, normally it goes away after some time.

Looks to me like the OP is using Yoast WordPress SEO.
A quick Google search turns up several results which indicate this problem is due to caching plugins.
If you clear any caching plugins you have and wait a while, then it usually sorts itself out.
It doesn't seem to me that you are doing anything incorrectly.
Also, way to demonstrate your problem :tup:
