Question about news feeds

I tried setting up some news feeds today with Calibre. I did this by adding a custom news source, putting in the link for the feed, and so on. Some of these turned out excellent, but there are two I had problems with.

The posts from the one feed shows a very dark grey background when viewed on an ereader. As a result, it's hard to read the text.

The other feed lists the posts, but there's no option to click the text "read more." In other words, you only get snips of the articles, and cannot read the whole thing.

So, my two questions are:

1) How can I edit the epub output for the first feed so the background is white?

2) How can I ensure that the "read more" function works?

If any of you want to test out the feeds I was using, I can post the links. I'm not sure if these are common problems, but the other feeds I tried worked fine.

You basically need a recipe that grabs the 'read more' link and creates a full article. I believe it's not that difficult to do if you have some programming skilss, otherwise you need to make a feature request for the specific site.
