Recipe for 'The Register'

Only just got a Sony Reader and started using the Calibre software. The idea of being able to convert RSS feeds to an ebook is really appealing. I've attempted to create a custom news source for 'The Register' (http://www.theregister.co.uk/headlines.atom). The feed downloads OK and a book is produced but it only contains the feeds and not any content from the associated web page. My initial thought was that Calibre does not handle Atom feeds but the website does mention support for Atom. Any suggestions?

The code is as follows:

class AdvancedUserRecipe1235238489(BasicNewsRecipe):
title = u'The Register'
oldest_article = 7
max_articles_per_feed = 100

feeds = [(u'The Register', u'http://www.theregister.co.uk/headlines.atom')]
