I have modified the CNN News reader to read my client's blog. However, I would like to return the description as HTML Text. So what happens, is I read the blog, loop through the RSS feed and create an output array just like the CNN Widget. But in my template, I want to be able to take advantage of the methods available for HTMLText object types. Is there anyway to do the following, but return one of the elements as HTMLText:
"Title" => $title,
"URL" => $link,
"Body" => $description
I went through just about all the widgets examples and I do not see anything that leads me to believe this is possible, but the widget examples aren't exactly pushing the edge of the envelope either. Any help would be appreciated.
