Ok Mobipocket doesnt offer custom enews, but there is a workaround, you can play with the coding and create your own enews channels... what interest me is how mobipocket can for e.g. extract news from FT.com's main website filtering it down to just plain text... (also i like the MobiType font)

check this:

im no computer geek (ok..maybe alittle bit), but i created my own first enews channel in my first try.. understanding HTML and other coding languages will help... though this is taunting, takes some time to make and might not be worth it for most of you, but its still interesting to know...

I will be experimenting more until I am be able to extract content from normal websites..

This sounds really interesting and I'm kind of excited about it. I don't have time to play with this now, but I will look into it. I tried out MobiPocket and the two things that I considered keeping it for were Time Magazine and the ModernHumorist. If there's a way to generate those into iSilo, why, I'll be the happiest girl ever.

Thanks Saud
