I had a dialog with @Syed and he asked me to post my work here.
Biggest issue I'm coming up against is file size creating PDFs. The PDFs look nice, but are large files
I took the raw output from the VOA - Amercas 28 Oct RSS feed and feed it into http://RSSdog.com to create text, and copied out the test into a simple text Word Processor. I make an RTF file which is 68 KB large, and a plain text file that is 41 KB.
Here's a sample of the RTF file
And here's a sample of the text file
Creating these files requires a bit of hands on typing to make it read easily, so it's not an automated process. I've uploaded both to Filecast today, so you be seeing them soon.
I'm going to do a few more days this way and upload both an .RTF and .TXT version of the VOA - Americas RSS feeds. Give me your ideas. Ken
