    I noticed my feed elements have character entities (for fancy punctuation characters) within content marked as CDATA, e.g. (in Atom feed)

    <summary type="text/plain" mode="escaped"><![CDATA[Here is an apostrophe: &#8217;]]></summary>

    Is this normal?

    My understanding was that all CDATA content is interepreted “as is” (no markup, no entities) — so charcater entities would not be decoded.
