  try to ask planet develppers to fix it.  the problem with planet (at
least the debian one) is that when it meets & it puts an & in the
feed it creates, instead of &

  AFAIK, it is a debianplanet bug since the source feeds it uses *are*
correctly escaped.

  BTW, a feed is XML, not html, and it's not really akregator's fault
not beeing tolerant.  If you are not convinced, when akregator has a
problem on debian planet, open the feed with konqueror or firefox,
you'll see that the xml is not valid.
