Currently, when MagpieRSS (otherwise marvellous general-purpose feed parser) encounters escaped content, it unescapes it, thus turning hard fought-for “<”s into “<“s.
Obviously this makes it really hard to read other geek bloggers who post code samples which use pointy brackets. In fact, it makes it a complete pain. I’ve looked at the source, but I’m pretty much a PHP-lamer and can’t see where this unescaping is going on – the file is available through ViewCVS for you to look at so you can tell me what to change to fix this.
I look forward to seeing what it makes of this post 🙂
