Subject: Cannot access the <content> element in RSS feeds
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 686b
In many RSS feeds, the <description> element contains a summary of the article while the <content> element has the full text. (THIS APPLIES TO RSS ONLY NOT ATOM.) Calling the description() method on the rss item returns the <description> element rather than the <content> element even if the more comprehensive <content> element is present. The description() method should either return the content element if it is available (for Atom description() already does this) or a content method should be added. It is possible to work around this by sub classing XML::FeedPP::RSS::Item and overriding the description method but sub classing XML::FeedPP is very complicated see bug 58422#.

I cannot find any reference to a <content> element in RSS feeds. Can you provide a specification which does list it?
