in reply to A different approach for bookmarks.

I also had the problem with not being able to get at my bookmarks very easily from various machines. So I use netscape on my external-facing machine to maintain my bookmarks (as I've not done a script to add them remotely, and that file might be in use anyhow) I set it up so it's web-accessable to anyone, because of all the times you get in conversations where every other sentence is "oh, there's a link to that in my bookmarks"

And because I've got so many links, it folds up folders so you can explore into them.

OTOH, there are also links and folders which are marked private (in the comment field) Straight links don't show up. Private folders show up, but aren't accessable without knowing how.

On top of that, it runs as an SSI, you can tell it what colours to output in, and call specific folders directly. Want to add a link to the rocketry links on my website ? I just add a bookmark to the 'rocketry' folder in netscape.

For more details, have a look at my links

The code is rather nasty, I've been using the script for several years now (with the odd tweak between upgrades of NS) but if you want help on how to do something in your script that mine does ask, or if you just want to steal ideas, feel free. If there's lots of interest in seeing the code, I'll even finish off the rewrite I started a while ago.
