I've been messing around with MovableType as a CMS for some sites and have noticed the RSS/Atom templates. While perusing some of the RSS sites out there I notice a lot of people complaining that the MT templates are poorly done.

What's wrong with these templates, and how can they be fixed?

Hi, Bill.

I've been using MT for about a year and haven't found any trouble with the stock RSS/RDF pages it generates, but I'm interested in any information regarding this as well.

So I don't know about you, but I'm going to check out their support forum for some answers. A very helpful cast of characters hangs out there and I'm sure we'll find whatever there is to find on the topic.

Normally the RSS templates aren't knocked--it's the others. They don't validate as XHTML/CSS. The new ones in MovableType 3 (currently in alpha) do. So it's a problem that won't be around much longer.

Maybe it was people complaining of the excerpted posts in the feeds? It seems that is the default (40 words or so). That seems easy enough to fix.
