New recipe for "Süddeutsche Zeitung" using "E-Paper mobile" subscription

I coded another recipe for accessing the paid contents of the German newspaper "Süddeutsche Zeitung". This one accesses the subscription "SZ E-Paper Mobil" which costs only 12.50 EUR/month. The present recipe "Süddeutsche Zeitung" uses the "Digital" subscription for 19.99 EUR/month. Hopefully someone finds this helpful.

Hi Ernst,

could you also provide an update for the free online version of the Süddeutsche. The articles seem to be cut and many picutres do not show properly.

It's every time a good idea to ask the person who provide the updates for the requestet recipe first in case of any errors. There is a existing thread you can use.

I am reading this recipe more or less every day and I can't see any cut image. Can you please use this thread to provide an example of your problem? (As soon SZ is online again)
