Economist Free Recipe

How close is the free recipe to the print version of the magazine (meaning how much of the magazine will appear in the free recipe)? Thanks.

Why does the recipe pull down articles from editions going back to 12/10? When you look at the code it limits oldest article to 6.5?

Presumably because in the rss feed their dates are set incorrectly

When I look at the contents of the fees in Google Reader it appears to properly list the dates.
