    Just noticed it said the use of the google news sitemap gets round the need to have 3 digits in the url

    I wouldn't be so sure on that, check out some news stories and see how many don't have numbers in the urls.

    You can define what ever url you want in wordpress. just click 'edit' next to the perma link at the top of the post/page editor.
