I had that problem with my RSS feed and Textile until I changed the 
relevant section of the <MTEntries> block to be:

<description><$MTEntryBody encode_xml="1" 

Curiously, though, it seems to be doing the right thing for my Markdown 
entries now as well, even with textile_2 specified in the filter. Hrm, 
hrm.  (I don't have a trackback with Markdown in it to tell if that works.)

What version of MT are you using?
