I'm using RSS in an intranet portal. An RSS channel is a list of items, and each item can have a title, a link and a description.

If you want it to not mangle up RSS feeds. make sure that the formatting information is escaped (i.e. uses <>) and de-escaped before being placed into the result page.
Also, you could look into <![CDATA[ ]]> sections in your XML document.
The description element shouldn't contain HTML. Use a newer RSS version (as 1.0 or 2.0) that supports the content:enconded element, which can contain HTML.
