#1685: the_content_rss() incorrectly applying filters to the_content

Changes (by digory):

  * resolution:  fixed =>
  * version:  1.6 => 2.0.1
  * status:  closed => reopened


 This fix seems to have broken numerical entities. I think Line 21 should
 have been the same, and add a new line for Kafkaesqui's fix.

 A la:

 $content = apply_filters('the_content', $content);
 $content = apply_filters('the_content_rss', $content);

 I may be wrong, but it seems to me that apply_filters does not change the
 output of the_content(). Rather, apply_filters takes some filters used for
 the_content (namely, convert_smilies and convert_chars -- see default-
 filters.php) and applies them to $content for this function.

 Without both of the lines I included above, ampersands come out like '&'
 and curly quotes and en dashes are not encoded at all. This produces bad

 Note how get_the_title_rss() does it. It uses apply_filters with both
 the_title and the_title_rss. Either it needs to look like
 the_content_rss() or vice versa.
