Subject: XML::RSS transforms < into &lt; even inside CDATA
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 514b
On line 1775 of RSS.pm in XML::RSS 1.01 (in sub encode), it is taking the text and transforming < into &lt;. I'm trying to put some HTML into my RDF output, but it's ending up getting screwed up because of this. I tried wrapping it in a <![CDATA[]]> but it still ends up getting munged. Is there any reason this is getting transformed? Especially considering it's not even consistent, > doesn't get turned into &gt; -- only &lt; is a special case... It shouldn't matter, but I'm on perl 5.6.0 on MacOSX 10.2.3

Thanks. Should have thought of that. In the meantime you can turn off the automatic encoding with: new XMl::RSS(encode_output => 0)
