RSS2HTML does not appear to be able to retrieve descriptions from Atom feeds.

I am attempting to get http://feeds.feedburner.com/PolyamoryInTheNews?format=xml if you click on the link you will see that FoxFire is able to present the descriptions.

However when I test it using my test file http://www.kinky-vegas.com/bots/contentTest.html only the item date and heading are displayed

When I view the source on the source link I can see the description deep in the atom tags as <atom:summary type="text">:

Two years ago Prudence (Emily Yoffe) scoffed at the idea, especially around kids. But so many of you wrote </atom:summary>

I have updateded both rss2html (// $Id: rss2html.php,v 3.15 2010/03/16 22:31:38 housley Exp $) and FeedForAll_XMLParser.inc.php (// Revision 3.24 2010/03/16 22:31:38 housley) to the latest versions I can find

My template file seems to work for other feeds

~~~ItemPubShortDate~~~ ~~~ItemPubShortTime~~~
~~~ItemTitle~~~ - ~~~ItemDescription~~~

I purchased rss2html pro and gave it a try but it does not even display the date or link so am not going to mess around with it more at this point

My question is: Am I doing something silly, or is rss2html incapable of correctly formatting Atom feeds?

My email is jayc@vegas-wireless.com

If it will not work I would like to be able to stop sending time beating a dead horse, if it can be made to work I would like to get past this point and get on to the rest of the stuff that needs to be done to complete this project

Unfortunately, I was informed by our development team that rss2html and rss2html Pro do not have support for Atom feeds. Currently, only RSS 2.0 feeds are supported. I was also informed that we do not currently have plans to offer Atom support.
