I authored the RSS Content Module spec[1] which provides the 
following example of how to include HTML inside an RSS item:

  <item rdf:about="http://example.org/item/">
     <title>The Example Item</title>
     <link>http://example.org/item/</link>
     <content:items><rdf:Bag>
       <rdf:li><content:item>
         <content:format rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" />
         <content:encoding rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-
xml#dt-wellformed" />

         <rdf:value rdf:parseType="Literal" 
xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
           <em>This is <strong>very</strong></em> <strong>cool</strong>.
         </rdf:value>

       </content:item></rdf:li>
     </rdf:Bag></content:items>
   </item>

This spec was approved by the RSS WG on 2001-03-01, but despite 
this I cannot say that I've seen this portion of the spec 
implemented.
