The doc for the_title_rss currently states:

Displays the title of the current post, formatted for RSS. This tag must 
be within The Loop.

In my experiments it appears that even when the title field contains 
tags and entity references, the tags are stripped out and the entity 
references converted to numeric character references.

Can I count on this behavior? It would make it much easier to fix some 
tricky parts of the Atom 1.0 plug-in?

Same question for the_excerpt_rss? Is this guaranateed to be plain text 
aside from numeric character references?

What do these functions do with unescaped reserved characters such as & 
and < ?
