 this little bug about the front/home page of is
embarrassing, because it makes the whole page look unprofessional.
And that is bad ...

Do you know who is responsible for the website, especially for the script
generates the contents of the “News at TDF Blog” section, and therefore
be told about this bug? I did not succeed in finding any information
about that
on the website (which is, BTW, probably yet another bug ;-).

Well - for all problems on the technical side of the infrastructure, the is a good candidate. Or the hostmaster

I'm copying Marc Paré and Christian Lohmaier on this, I think one of them
was involved in setting up the feed. I'll also copy our website mailing
list, where our website team is subscribed to, I am sure you'll find help
there. :-)

It is not that easy to fix, as the description entries are not uniform
across the various feeds, and planet aggregator does no normalizing... So
either you get double-escaping, or you fail to include the HTML.
The planet itself already has the problem, basically it is broken feeds
that get syndicated.

It is almost impossible to get this right - since when would you know
whether it is OK to interpret "escaped" html as actual HTML?
And it is also hard to reproduce, as the broken feeds are only online for a
couple of days before they get replaced by newer entries...

But I'll have a look and check what can be done...

The code that does the parsing is on github btw mysite/code → the RSS-Widget one.
