Sam Ruby pinpoints the glitch:
I'll be damned. I had forgotten that Radio UserLand's RSS writer runs the title through an encoding routine. That's where the extra level of escaping came from. I had removed the call to the encoder for the body content in my version of the RSS writer, but not for the title. Now it's removed there too, which I think is correct for my situation, but we'll see.
Let's take a closer look into Jon's RSS feed:<title>Active r&#233;sum&#233;s</title>Arguably, the InfoWorld process did parse the RSS feed, once. [Sam Ruby]
Thanks Sam, and apologies to the InfoWorld crew -- it was my fault after all. Clearly Sam's right: we could, indeed, learn a lot from those 13th century artisans. And I guess Micah Dubinko would agree.
