Hi Nick,
Thanks for responding to a beginner!
OK there is obviously a different problem then. When I download the NY Times (full recipe that comes with Calibre and needs a username and password) I get this (Kindle Touch):

Am I doing something wrong with the conversion to MOBI? I use all the default settings apart from on the page set up tab where I choose the Kindle as the output profile.

My MOBI file (sorry its 5MB!) from the NY Times is attached.
