Downloads magazines from the Economist, converts them to .mobi, and optionally emails them to your Kindle.

Details at nicj.net.

NOTE: This script attempts to work with the most recent Economist editions on economist.com. Older editions may have different formatting that is incompatible with the current script. If want to view an older edition and the current script doesn't work, take a look at previous versions of this script.

If this script doesn't work, please check for the latest version at github. The economist.com changes often and may break this script.
