Right. It seems to me that an <abstract> element or something similar
in RSS would be a great benefit. When viewed on a first generation
WAP phone, the user would view the abstract. When viewed on a desktop
browser, the user would also read the abstract but most probably
click through to the full HTML page.

I think that RSS could really jumpstart the content-to-WAP-phone
area. All I want it a teeny-weeny abstract field...
