Support HTML span tag, to display styled text (source code, highlighting etc.) from original post
I use Google reader to read programming posts. These posts contain lots of source code, that is typically syntax-highlighted using colors etc. via HTML span tags within <pre> blocks. These appear correctly on Google Reader but not on Feedly. In Feedly, the entire <span> tag is displayed as-is, rather than rendered.
For example: jObject.<span style="">addToolbar</span><span style="color: #080;">(</span><span style="color: #080;">)</span>
Suspected reason: feedly automatically converts <span> into "< ;span> ;" rather than keeping the original angled brackets.

It's been more than a year and a half, with 360 votes and still nothing...
Is there any plan for this?
I mean it would be really simple if you just for the start include highlight.js.
Several of my feeds use text color to convey information.

Another vote for this to be fixed. I need my TDWTF fix! :)

http://the.taoofmac.com/rss is also a feed that regularly uses code snippets and it looks really broken now.

Yes, this needs fixed. Google Code downloads are similarly broken.

Yes, this is absolutely the most frustrating issue I had since migrating from Google Reader.
As an avid programming blog reader, this essentially turns Feedly into a link index, as I always have to open those blogs in a tab.
I understand it's important to sanitize HTML in feeds, but it's not that hard.

This is so frustrating. TDWTF is one of my top 5 feeds and I can't read most of them now without going to the main site :'(

I hope this gets fixed soon! This makes some feeds impossible to read.
I too saw one with massive block of span tags. Here's a link to the article: http://thedailywtf.com/Articles/Were-Going-to-Need-Another-Guru!.aspx

I just opened a post in Feedly, and it's loaded with <span> tags. Can you please render this HTML instead of showing me all the tags?
