Once again I'm experiencing trouble with an odd feed.

This time the XML does not entirely obey the standard and adds unencoded
sub-tags to the description item. However, the plain content, that is
also there, is ignored by pRSSreader.

> <item>
> <title>WDR wehrt sich gegen Verbot des Contergan-Films</title>
> <link>http://www.dwdl.de/article/news_8486,00.html</link>
> <description><div style="float: left"><img

I would expect pRSSreader to ignore the unencoded <div> and <img> tags
(as they clearly do not conform to the standard) but display the text
that is not within another tag (starting with "Nachdem ein Gericht") and
therefore the real content of the description node. Other feed readers
deal with the feed in exactly this way. My guess is that the sub nodes
throw expat or your handling code off track.

The feed's URL for testing: http://dwdl.de/features/rss/rss.php

BTW: Any news about the beta?
