Saturday Guardian problem

Apologies if covered elsewhere, but I've seen no reference to a similar problem (the fact that it only seems to affect me might suggest that my Kindle is at fault rather than the recipe). However, for the past few weeks, I've noticed that the Saturday edition of The Guardian & Observer causes my Kindle 4 to freeze and crash. No other day of the week displays similar issues. Is the file just too big (last week's was over 17mb) for the Kindle 4 to handle?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Yes, the Kindle has been known to crash on some larger files. It's not so much raw filesize as amount of text/markup complexity.

The only way I know to workaround it is to edit the recipe to remove content you dont want.
