I recently tried validating my RSS feed ( with RSS Validator (, and I get the following errors:

description should not contain relative URL references

I guess this is true; RSS descriptions should not contain relative URLs, and many of my article descriptions do...  Can anyone think of a good solution to this?  Here's how I generate the <description>:

{$if nonblank a.teaser$}{$a.teaser$}{$endif$}
{$if blank a.teaser$}{$a.body$}{$endif$}

I don't see any easy way to change relative URLs in the teasers or bodies.  And I don't want to make all the URLs on the site absolute, that would be ugly.

Thanks in advance!
