Font sizes for news downloads

Hello,
I'm new with calibre, like this application well and I'm using it mainly for downloading news. And here I have got a little problem:

When I download the any news source and transfer it to my eReader by clicking on "send to device" I always get tiny font sizes like here:
Click image for larger version

Name:	m92.jpg
Views:	40
Size:	512.4 KB
ID:	84494

My device is the Onyx Boox M92 with a screen size of 9.7".

Of course I can increase the font sizes with my reader, but then I get very big titles.

I there any possibility to increase the smaller font size without icreasing the title sizes? I have already read this help, but it doesn't work
For testing purposes I adjusted calibre in that way:
Click image for larger version

Name:	font.png
Views:	33
Size:	86.3 KB
ID:	84495
I expected that every font size would become equal but nothing has changed when I downloaded the news again and transferred it to my device. Everything remains like before.

Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong?

Thank You!

If you want to pass conversion options to the recipe download system, use the conversion_options parameter in the recipe, setting global conversion options will not apply to news downloads. In your case you need

conversion_options = {'font_size_mapping': whatever}

You can get the values by running a conversion in the GUI with the values you want and looking at the conversion log.

Thank You kovidgoyal!
I've never heard about recipes before, but in the last days I read a lot about them. I see it's very complicated to read news with an e-Book Reader yet. :/

I can now change my font size with:
conversion_options = {'base_font_size' : ##}

Your suggestion don't have any effect
conversion_options = {'font_size_mapping': ##}

But I'm not able to change different sizes individualy like:
Font size key : 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20
If I increase all font sizes in the same manner I get monstrous headlines.

Thanks!
