Feedburner Feeds with Relative Image URLs

http://feeds.feedburner.com/webadvent... in particular, is using relative image urls. But apparently Feedburner doesn't modify the output to make the URL fully-qualified, so the images break.

Is there any way to change it so that when I'm viewing the story, the /channel/link value is used with relative image urls?

That's the spec. Relative URLs are relative to the URL that are found at. In this case it's a feed burner URL. I can't change it to the linked website URL because that would break more sites in turn.

Explained more at http://www.rimmkaufman.com/blog/absol..., but the answer is that the site author needs to use absolute urls if they are going to host the feed on a different domain than the assets.
