Unable to create Salesforce.com WSDL

I connect to the ff URL to get the Salesforce.com WSDL:
I get the following exception when I preview an operation while trying to create a WSDL metadata in TOS (It does not matter what operation, I get the same error):
Exception in component tWebServiceInput
org.xml.sax.SAXException: Fatal Error: URI=https://na5.salesforce.com/soap/wsdl.jsp?type=* Line=20: The reference to entity "startURL" must end with the ';' delimiter.

Preview error. Some settings must be changed.
Note: Preview errors are generally due to a wrong encoding setting.

I'm wondering if the error might be due to the fact that the SOAP endpoint inside the WSDL is for the latest version of Salesforce (v 15.0), whereas when I create Salesforce.com metadata TOS only allows version 10.0?
Any suggestion to fix the error?

Re: Unable to create Salesforce.com WSDL

I was able to fix the problem by downloading the WSDL to my local drive and then pointed the web service meta data create to the local copy of the wsdl.
