Comics scoops

Here are a few comics scoops that I've made. The .site files themselves are attached and I've dumped the text too. The only trick to comics sites (it seems) is finding good StoryStart and StoryEnd text blocks that sandwich the image tightly, so the rest of the page is ignored...

Note that I found that changing the ImageScaleToMaxWidth parameter didn't seem to have any effect in iSilo. All the image sizing seems to be done in the iSilo conversion. The docs mention that that command may be removed, so perhaps it's no longer functional? Regardless, I left it in but commented out.

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

   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
#

  StoryEnd: Other

  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.
