Text view breaks when blockquote tags are present in summary

The text view for this site usually works fine, but sometimes it fails to pick up any text that appears in a post’s expanded entry. From what I can tell, this only happens when the content excerpt in the RSS feed contains blockquote tags.

This is an example of a problem post. The post consists of an introductory paragraph followed by four blockquoted paragraphs. The post’s entry in its RSS feed includes the intro paragraph and the first two blockquoted paragraphs, followed by a “Read more” link. In Newsblur, if I go from Feed view to Text view, the “Read more” link disappears, but the final two blockquoted paragraphs don’t appear. This happens in both the web and Android clients.
