What would be most useful, I guess, is to figure out where in the
documentation it should be said that (:description:) puts a value into
$ItemDesc, and what this property is used for. I knew about the
(:description:) markup, and I knew that $ItemDesc was used to fill the
description fields in RSS feeds, but didn't know that $ItemDesc and
(:description:) were connected. I'm not sure whether that should
appear on a page explaining variables, or a page explaining
directives, or on a page explaining RSS feeds, but probably at least
one of the above. I'd have written it already but I'm still a tad bit
confused about the whole thing.
At any rate, (:description:) works for me, at least at the moment.
