Missing Text in Custom feed

I am trying to create a custom feed of my local newspaper:

http://rss.cincinnati.com/apps/pbcs....enq01&mime=xml

I can get the feed in epub and I can preview the feed in Calibre. Everything looks fine with the table of contents, etc and when I click on an article the text appears. I then transfer the feed to the PRS-505, and everything looks fine with the table of contents (the article title appears) but when I click on the article all that is shown is a blank page.

Any ideasas to what I am doing wrong? I just entered the feed in the url under custom feed, do I need to add something in advanced? Total Newbie here to Calibre.

Thanks!

This is most likely a case where the reader can't handle the markup in the HTML pages of the newspaper. Add the following to your recipe (in Advanced Mode)

html2epub_options = 'linearize_tables = True'

Thanks for the reply kovidgoyal.

I tried as you suggested and I still don't get full article on the reader. I only get the summary (just a couple lines of the article). In the viewer in calibre, the text is not formatted correctly and it pulls in alot of the newspaper graphics, etc. I even tried pulling in the print version by adding

PHP Code:
def print_version(selfurl):
        return 
url '&template=printart' 
I got this from The Indianapolis newspaper and it looked like the print version of the article from the cincinnati newspaper contained template=printart.

post this question in the custom recipes thread and maybe someone who has the time will look at it in detail and help you.
