What the program does:

This program can be used to create a web page from your Internet Explorer favorites. You can select which favorites will appear on the web page. By supplying a header and a footer file you can control the appearance of the web page. If you use Firefox you can use this program to convert your bookmarks into favorites.

How to use it:

  1. Start by pressing the Find button. You will see a list of all the favorites found.

  2. You can double click the favorites to check or uncheck them.

  3. If you don't like the way the name appears you can click the Edit button to change the name. You can also right click the favorite to view it in your browser.

  4. Now click the Settings button. You need to select the destination file for your web page. You can also choose if you want all the favorites included or just the selected ones.

  5. Now you are ready to create your web page. Click the Create web page button to start the process.

Creating header and footer files:

This is an example of a header file:

<title>Title goes here</title>
<style type="text/css">
h2 { font-family: geneva, Arial; font-size: large; color: #ff1493;}
li { font-family: arial; font-size: small; line-height: 1.3em; }
ul { list-style-type: none; padding-left: 1em; }
body { background-color: #fafad2; margin-top: 0; }
td { width: 252px; text-align: left; vertical-align: top; font-family: arial; font-size: small; }

This is an example of a tail file:

<hr />
<p><a href="index.html">Back</a></p>

Using with Firefox:

  1. First you must find your bookmarks file. It will be in a folder like
    "C:\Documents and Settings\user name\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\default.tso\bookmarks.html."
    where "user name" is the name you are logged in as. Now go to Settings and set the "Bookmark folder" to this location. The button on the right will help you browse to the location.

  2. Next go to Bookmarks / Find the bookmarks that are not in Favorites. You will see a list of favorites followed by a list of bookmarks. Favorites have a square box and bookmarks have a circle. You will probably need to scroll to the bottom of the list to see the bookmarks. If you want to create a favorite from the boolmark then right click on it and select "Create Favorite file." Double click it if you want to include it on your web page.

  3. Once all the favorites have been created then use the program as shown above.


This program is available on an "as is basis". I make no claims that it will work on your system. Use it at your own risk. You are free to use it as you like but remember that I own the rights to it. See you on the web at llevine.com.
