use moibpocket to convert web pages?

I am a long time user of iSilo on the Palm and I have long loved it for its ability to quickly parse web pages. I have recently gotten a blackberry Curve from my work and I'm trying to transfer my e-reading onto it. The only application I have found that looks good is Mobipocket. However, I cannot figure out the best way to convert a web page into a mobi file for the berry. Do I have to download the page as an HTML file, or is there a way to grab a page off the web? I creator the best tool for the job or is there something else?

Hope these aren't dumb questions. I did scan through the forums and couldn't find any mention of these issues. Thanks for any help.

Try Calibre. You can get it to download and convert web pages. There are existing plug-ins for many news web sites, and you can write your own.
