That's the sort of thing I'd like to do with The Guardian from the UK, but I can't work out how to just choose the printable version. It's just a question of adding /printable to the end of each web page, but I don't know how to do it using Python.
Doh.

Doh again. It got down from a 2.2 meg file to a 1.2 meg file, but now there seems to be something about it that the reader doesn't like. I've had 6 reboots now, with no success in opening it.

Well, that was a partial success. It loaded on the reader in a flash, but for some reason only had a few stories. I'm going to try my original way, but as EPUB.

This now gives me two pages of code, some links from the web site, and then the article. Very odd.

Nope, it doesn't work at all now. Serves me right for trying.
