Exclamation New York Times Scoop!

Okay, I have worked out a rudimentary site file that reads the New York Times front page from the RadioUserland rss feed. It works well, but the format of the output contents page is really ugly and needs some major help. (On the other hand, the story pages look great.) I'm struggling to figure out how to make this change, but it the meantime, feel free to give it a whirl. Any comments are welcome. Any guidance on perl would be great.

You can either copy the following text and save it in a file with the .site extension (eg. NYT_Front.site) or just download the attachment.
