Comics and sitescooper and plucker

I have a problem with comics and sitescooper. I wrote this in another sitescooper forum some months ago (http://sitescooper.org/pipermail/sit...q1/001549.html):

I'm having trouble getting image-only sites to work
with sitescooper and plucker 1.6, mostly comics. The
image downloads all right, but I can't view it in full
screen, just a tiny, un-clickable thumbnail appears.
I've been trying with these two examples:

Code:
URL:
http://www.kingfeatures.com/features...aboutMaina.php
Name: Zits
StoryStart: <!--CMS NAME="image"-->
StoryEnd: <!--/CMS-->
StoryDiff: 1
ImageOnlySite: 1
ImageURL: http://est.rbma.com/content/Zits.*
ImageScaleToMaxWidth: 525

AuthorName: William Fishburne
AuthorEmail: william.fishburne /at/ verizon.net

   StoryPostProcess: {
    s/<img .*>/<a href="0.gif">[tap to display
image]<\/a>/gs;
  }
# I added this next bit in, following yahoo eg below
StoryHTMLPreProcess: {
  s/ALT="Today.s Zits Cartoon"/
      ALT="Today.s Zits Cartoon" WIDTH=525
height="168"
  /gs;
}


# Yahoo Map weather coverted to doc format using
sitescooper
# 
#
URL:
http://weather.yahoo.com/img/aus_sat_440_mdy_y.html
  Name: YahooMap
  Levels: 1
  StoryStart: <TD width=560>
  StoryEnd: Other
  StoryDiff: 1
  ImageOnlySite: 1
  ImageURL: http://weather.yahoo.com/images/.*
  ImageScaleToMaxWidth: 440
  UseTableSmarts: 0

# add size info so sitescooper knows to make it into a
# link for Plucker.
StoryHTMLPreProcess: {
  s/ALT="Today.s Weather Map"/
      ALT="Today.s Weather Map" WIDTH=440 height="297"
  /gs;
}

Grateful for any help - thanks in advance.

Geoffrey.
