I've written some code to generate an RSS feed from my website.
I know that this is valid for the description element of a channel or item:
But is this valid?
<description>The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.</description>
And what will most RSS clients do with the markup within the CDATA section? I notice that IE interprets it correctly, safari ignores the tags and just displays the content of the tag and Epiphany on Debian just makes a dog's dinner of it!
<description><![CDATA[<span style='display:block'><b>T</b>he quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.</span><a style='display:block' href='http://www.mydomain.com'>More articles and other stuff here.</a>]]></description>
I ask because I've see feeds that do exact what I've shown above.
