Extract Only Printer Friendly Pages from News site

|I just downloaded and am exprerimenting with Offline Explorer Pro.
What led to this is the fact that my local newspaper does not use dejanews, and their site really STINKS on a pocket pc.
What I would like to do is download only the "printer friendly" versions of the editorial pages from the sections that I`m interested in viewing.
I was trying today to do that for the editorial section.
Here is the main site URL:
The editorial page is here:
What I want OEP to do is to follow only links on the editorial page which begins with
And then within each of those subsequent pages to follow the links beginning with:
It is only the last set of pages that I really want to save to my hard drive, but I think I could work around it if I got the editorial page and the intervening story page.
I looked through the forum and couldn`t find a good parallel to follow. I also tried several attempts at doing this, but never could get the printer friendly pages to save...
Please advise, thanks.

|Well, it is possible to do with the URL Substitutes feature - when OE downloads the printer-friendly URL instead of the actual article. You will find this feature in the Project Properties dialog | Advanced section. If you have problem making the rules, let me know and I will try to help you.
