This patch parses the "alink" tag in alternative of "link" in RSS feeds. This completely out of standard tag has been found at least in the feeds provided by Xinhua News Agency (the first Chinese press agency), and without this it is impossible to identify the primary URL for the news: by clicking on the item's header in Liferea, description just disappears and it is not possible to retrieve full contents.

    I've researched a bit and found no valid reference for using alink for referring to RSS feeds. I believe you should ask the Xinhua webmaster to fix the website. I guess they propably made a mistake.
