Newspapers on PRS-500 after update?

All, has anyone purchased a newspaper from the Sony Reader Store and successfully read it on their PRS-500 after the software update? I cannot find information on Sony's website with a clear answer.

Many thanks.

I've never used the Sony store for epubs but I do get two local papers and one national paper for my reader every day using the recipes in Calibre. You can see the basic format in the images I attached to this post.

I could be wrong but I believe purchasing newspapers through Sony is only available for PRS-900 users. If you want newspapers for your 500, you will have to use Calibre's recipes funtion.

Thanks to both of you. I am aware of Calibre. I have it installed and have used it. But I was curious about the papers the Sony Reader store sales, just to see what it looked like on my PRS-500. I'll try to put the paper on my Reader via Calibre.
