RSS: Should stand for Real Simple, Sorta

Submitted by Barrett on Sun, 07/26/2015 - 09:48

For ages I've thought that I should get this site included on the Drupal Planet feed, and with the new build in D8 and a currently renewed momentum to actually write here, this seemed like a good time to actually do it.  Should be simple, right? Tag my content, allow commenting, submit the RSS feed url for inclusion, profit.  Not so much.

The hang up is that the RSS generated by the core taxonomy term feed view doesn't validate, according to the W3C validator; looks like it's gacking on the inclusion of unencoded HTML tags within the Description not being in fields labeled as CDATA.

Yes, this is a thing I can fix in a few different ways, but doesn't it seem like using an RSS feed view should just automagically handle all that drek?
