Question Recipe without rss feed?


There is a webpage (URL) that gets updated daily. There is no rss feed.

Basically I would like to write a recipe that grabs the contents of that single URL and formats it into an epub for me once a day.

My first approach, to just add the URL to the feeds variable gives me an epub with all the contents of the URL including its html tags - with no formatting at all.

I flipped through the API documentation but only found the 'use_embedded_content' variable, which might be the correct direction? However I feel being trapped by having the URL content interpreted as rss and not as "news content".

Any clue how to process webpages without the help of rss feeds?
Thank you!
