Improving the readability of the Financial Times

Hi
this may strike you as horribly specialist but...my query could lead to an enhanced reading experience for all who download newspapers on to their e-reading device.
Calibre offers an interface for subscribers to the FT - like me- and i'm very grateful for it. However, the download I get is basically a list of 119 articles with no segmentation and very little guidance as to the content of each except for the headline.
If the developer of the FT interface is out there I'd be happy to talk over how to improve the user experience. If you know him/her please draw this post to his/her attention.

best wishes to all
Simon

The man you're looking for is kiklop74, feel free to PM him if he doesn't notice this post, but he may not have the time to work on this recipe.

Thank You

Many Thanks Kovid - I've emailed the developer. Let's something comes from it.

You all have to understand I do this in my spare time with no financial gain whatsoever and when I'm in the mood. In this particular case updated recipe will be included in the next release of Calibre.

Remmember that when you think about donations to any of the developers tied to this project.

I've just upgraded and tried out the new Financial Times recipe - works a treat, and is a real benefit to me. I've dropped a small donation into the tip-jar, with thanks.
