Parsing and encoded RSS Feed with JQuery

Hey all,

I'm attempting to parse an RSS feed, but it looks like all of the elements in the <description> tag are coming over HTMLEncoded.  

The logical answer here would be "Well, DECODE it then!".

Right, but after it's decoded, I've attempted to get JQuery to "find" an element (specifically an img tag) with no success.

My code looks like this:

if(jQuery('rss', xml).length == 0) this.version = '1.0';
        else this.version = jQuery('rss', xml).eq(0).attr('version');

        var channel = jQuery('channel', xml).eq(0);
        var images = jQuery(channel).find('img');

A sample feed is attached... any help would be greatly appreciated.
