External URL ampersands RSS feed = bug?
Fairly simple thing, perhaps I’m missing something:
When we have a post that uses the External URL field, and that URL has an ampersand in it (
example.com/index.php?foo=1&bar=2), the RSS feed for the site ends up with
<comments>tags which contain the unescaped ampersand character instead of
#38;entities. As a result, RSS validation breaks and a bunch of clients choke on the malformed XML.
Am I seeing a bug, or am I missing something totally obvious here?
