I wrote spiegel shimbunthe when i have seen how easy it is with
sb-rss.el :) Parsing the html can be a pain.  But if someone else is
doing the work... :)

Markus:  have a look at my sb-spiegel.el.  Getting the page for
printing purpose instead of the "right" page works pretty well.
It contains all images, real hyperlinks and no ads or other junk.

the RSS Feed should contain (encoded in the URL).  See


I'll add a comment to the EmacsWiki that you can `setq'
