Background color of RSS feed

I have just started using Calibre. I think I'm going to love this tool!

I have created a custom news feed using this url:

Minneapolis - http://www.startribune.com/local/minneapolis/index.rss2

Everything works great, except there is a background color on the content which makes it very difficult to read on my prs-505.

Is there any way to correct this?

Thank you!

OK. I added that to the recipe. When I view the document in the viewer all is good. There is no style sheet.

However, when I send it to the reader, navigate through the table of contents and select a story to read, the reader stops responding for a couple min then reboots. Other feeds are still working correctly including the previous version of this feed.

Here it is.

Actually I just realized that I have repeated the no stylesheet line. I tried various versions before posted the problem. But I'm certain the first attempt had only the one.

class AdvancedUserRecipe1252789404(BasicNewsRecipe):
title = u'Star Tribune'
oldest_article = 1
max_articles_per_feed = 100
no_stylesheets = True

feeds = [(u'Star Tribune', u'http://www.startribune.com/rss/?sf=1&s=/'), (u'Local + Metro', u'http://www.startribune.com/local/index.rss2'), (u'Minneapolis', u'http://www.startribune.com/local/minneapolis/index.rss2'), (u'Nation', u'http://www.startribune.com/nation/index.rss2'), (u'World', u'http://www.startribune.com/world/index.rss2'), (u'Commentary', u'http://www.startribune.com/opinion/commentary/index.rss2'), (u'Editorials', u'http://www.startribune.com/opinion/editorials/index.rss2'), (u'Business', u'http://www.startribune.com/business/index.rss2'), (u'Science', u'http://www.startribune.com/science/index.rss2'), (u'State Politics', u'http://www.startribune.com/politics/state/index.rss2'), (u'Local Politics', u'http://www.startribune.com/politics/local/index.rss2'), (u'Lifestyle', u'http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/index.rss2'), (u'Your Money', u'http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/yourmoney/index.rss2'), (u'Family', u'http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/family/index.rss2'), (u'Entertainment', u'http://www.startribune.com/entertainment/index.rss2'), (u'Movies', u'http://www.startribune.com/entertainment/movies/index.rss2'), (u'Movie Reviews', u'http://www.startribune.com/MovieReviews.rss'), (u'John Ewoldt', u'http://www.startribune.com/bios/rss/?rss=10644811'), (u'Carolyn Hax', u'http://www.startribune.com/bios/rss/?rss=10754366'), (u'Technobabble', u'http://blogs2.startribune.com/blogs/technobabble/?feed=rss2')]
no_stylesheets = True

I'm a little too busy at the moment to look at this, but open a ticket and attach the recipe and I'll have a look when I find a moment
