Hmm. Some of my feeds use a tag called 'content:encoded', which
contain the full content of the article, whereas the 'description'
tag only contains the first 'before the cut' part. The example I
know is wordpress based. I haven't looked in more depth at how other
sites do things... Perhaps you could prioritise content:encoded
where it exists over description?
