Some feeds chop their title or description to a certain
number of words or characters - depending on how it's done,
this can cause browser corruption in AmphetaDesk (unclosed
font tags, for example). AmphetaDesk should have the
option to remove all (or some) HTML from an item
description or title, thus "sanitizing" the content for normal
viewing. I've got a module to do this already (the
Sanitize.pm from Movable Type, modified for use with
AmphetaDesk), it's just a matter of adding it to CVS.
