Actually RSS (both rss.php and the protocol itself) has lots of 
problems -- see 


In general HTML character entities cause problems for RSS feeds and
there's not a clean workaround.  I'm to the point where I may simply
have to hardcode a table of character entity names and their replacements,
as there doesn't seem to be an automated mechanism for doing it.  :-(
