Importing RSS into WordPress

Today I imported 25 postings from my old blog. I used the import-rss script but the import screwed up the html elements by replacing the < tag with &lt; and the > tag with &gt;. So I searched the beta support and found a recommendation by someone to add a html_entity_decode function call on the content and description. I also added it to the title. Then I renamed the file from import-rss.php to import-rss1.php and changed the link in the file to point to the new name when it gets invoked as step 1. This time the posts looked good.
