Frolicking with FeedReader

I thought I’d give FeedReader a spin, to see how it worked with my feeds. Now, it claims to work with RSS 0.91 and 1.0, but I can only seem to get it to show the full (as in uncut) versions of the post when using the 0.91 feed, and not with the superior 1.0 and 2.0 feeds. I’m guessing it’s because it only reads the description tag and not the content:encoded tag, which is where the full entry bodies are located.
Looks like I’ll be keeping the 0.91 feed going for a while yet then…
Just tried out Syndirella, which does pretty much the same job but offers better RSS 1.0 and 2.0 support. You need Microsoft’s hefty .NET framework to run it, though.
