I'm not sure this is in the correct forum...

I'm just starting to really dive into WordPress and manipulate it for my needs. I'd like to be able to get the full content of my posts from my RSS feed, or other people's RSS feeds for that matter.

When I look at the standard RSS/ATOM feed in WordPress, it only contains a brief excerpt of the post in the <description> field. Is this a setting in WordPress that I can change? If not, is it conceivable that a plugin could be created which would publish a feed with the full content?
