Which online pubs does Calibre do a good job downloading

I tried downloading Time magazine and MSNBC.com ... it does not seem to work right. Some articles have no text ... just the heading. Not sure if this is a problem with the RSS feed.

Which magazines / pubs related to news come through fine ?

Thanks.

I just checked Time - it's perfect - no missing text.
Edit: Just checked MSNBC, too. It's got all the text, but needs some cleanup to remove junk - the site has probably changed since the recipe was written.

I just tried Time and it looks fine.

Thanks !

BTW ... PC Magazine download should article titles in TOC that do not really exist (e.g. "Fake Firefox flash update goes rogue")

Again .. not a big deal. I am not expecting this to be 100% foolproof.

Great product !!!
