    Yes, the RSS feed comes through as plain text, not HTML. To get the RSS feed to come through as HTML, open wp-rss2.php in a text editor and change:
    <?php the_excerpt_rss() ?>

    to

    <?php the_content_rss() ?>

    You can do that to wp-rss.php, wp-rdf.php, and wp-atom.php as well. For more info, see this:

    For a list of "approved" text editors, see this:

    Or set your feed to full text (Options > Reading).

    But that would be just full text, no formatting or HTML links, wouldn't it?

    The RSS2 file in 1.5 (at least in my copy) is using the_content() for displaying post content in full text mode.

    Wow, another useful new feature which snuck in under the radar.
