'link depth' functionality

description

Often rss feeds only have the headlines and users have to click on 'Read Full Article' or 'Link to Article' to read the rest of the article - this is often not feasible as users are not connected. Hence, it would be excellent to have a link depth functionality to allow the entire news feed to be available (AvantGo kind of does this)

I took a look at this issue today because I was curious why some readers (Newsreader, for example) will bring down the whole article and BeyondPod won't.

In an Atom feed, BeyondPod is pulling down the Summary element but is not bringing in the content element. In an RSS2.0 feed, BeyondPod is pulling in the Description element rather than the content element.
