#720 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

RSS feeds currently do not validate

It seems that the_excerpt_rss() no longer escapes html characters regardless of what parameters it is passed. As such, if you have those characters or html in your excerpt then some news readers will balk on your invalid feed.

I've fixed it on my site by adding CDATA tags to the description elements of the rss feeds and to the summary tag of the atom feed.
