Don’t know where that came from. Other than part of the last two lines

User-agent: *
Disallow:

It doesn’t even look like good robots.txt syntax.
If you don’t need robots.txt file then I would delete it.

kim,

Did you perhaps paste the text which you did want in your robots.txt from a TextEdit, Pages - or Word file… it looks as though those lines may be formatting or other metadata?
