See comic subscriptions in NetNewsWire 2.0

This would be very cool... but I can't get it to work.

Using the given example (passing the "Boondocks|boondocks|bo" arguments to the script), I get:


<body id="traditionalViewBody" class="completeNewsItem">
<div class="newsItemContainer">
	<div class="newsItemTitle"><strong><a href="http://www.ucomics.com/boondocks/">
Boondocks for Tuesday, November 30, 2004</a></strong></div>
	<div class="newsItemDescription">img</div>
	<div class="newsItemDateLine"><span class="newsItemSource"><a href="http://localhost">
<img src="(snip)" align="top" height="16" width="16" /></a> <a href="http://localhost">Boondocks</a></span>
<span class="newsItemDate">11/30/04 9:26 AM</span> </div>

In other words, I just get the letters "img" as the body of the RSS item instead of a graphic. Am I doing something wrong?

OK just to cover the basics, have you
. downloaded the script
. turned on the execute permission (chmod +x ucomics.py in the terminal )
. created a new script subscription (not new subscription) in the new special menu
. Set the script to be a python script rather an an apple script?
. Set your parameters

Yes, I have done all of those things. When I run the script, it generates an RSS item with the comic's name and today's date in it -- but where the image is supposed to be, there's just the text "img."

If I change the parameters (say, from Boondocks to Calvin and Hobbes), the title of the RSS item updates, but the effect is the same.
