Hi!

Yesterday i coded a small tool to extract articles from a big austrian newspaper called "derStandard" (http://derstandard.at). These are written into one big htm file with a index, containing links to the detailed articles. Only articles within the last 24 hours are taken.

Usage:
1) Download and extract the zip file. (it contains only one file: "derstandard.jar")
2) Double click on the jar file.
3) After selecting the ressorts you are interessted click the "Lade den Standard" button to create a .htm file.
4) Drag and dropped the created .htm file on mobigen.exe to convert it to a .prc file.
5) Load the .prc file onto the Cybook and enjoy the daily newspaper on your way to work...

I used a Jericho HTML Parser (http://jerichohtml.sourceforge.net/doc/index.html) library which is licensed under the LGPL and EPL. Every further user should respect that.

Maybe someone finds it usefull.

Great work.


P.S. I'm going to move this thread. Your tool is also good for the Kindle and the Iliad.
