Hi guys,

please forgive my ignorance but I think I need a bit of clarification here.

Isn't the feed generated by a script? Couldn't that script simply manufacture the absolute URLs at runtime the same time WordPress does when viewing the site through a browser?

Again, I apologize if I'm being blatantly stupid but I don't see how feeds constitutes a problem. An example would be nice if someone could give it.

Many thanks.
