Usually, atom feeds have:
| <content><![CDATA[ ...]]</content>

However, some feeds just use raw html:
| <content><p>...</p></content>

This is parsed by libxml as normal html, meaning that some feeds would
error, because we were trying to insert a list.

Instead of assuming it's a string, make sure before inserting it.  If
it's a cons, just parse it with dom-strings.
