An updated listing can be found k.html, but while it does include the keywords suitable for bookmarking I don't have a way of bolding portions of the description.  Though I may create a bookmarklet to specifically display shortcuturl.

Updating the above listing (#update)

Thanks to a thread on clearing the bookmarks.html of proprietary and other code not needed for documentation I will be able to update the above list in the future based on this thread (2007-01-25. Bassically running a bookmarklet and using Save As to save the changed underlying source code.

The above keyword shortcuts (#description)

The above key word shortcuts should give you a good idea of what I actually have, I keep additional private shortcuts to friends, bank, etc in another folder so I won't have to remove them in the examples.  Some of the above are marked that they will have to be customzied for your own use such as chrome:, profile:, and others.

The HREF: is actually a bookmarklet you can invoke it to the links, or drag it to your bookmarks bar (personal bookmarks) to use as a bookmarklet.  Actually the bookmarks with %s or %S in them have been converted to %25s and %25S so that the page will validate as HTML.  I would be more prone to update my examples if I could decently edit out extraneous material concerning dates used etc.

This page is a continuation of my Keyword search (kws.htm) web page.

Private Keywords (#private)

In addition to the key word shortcuts I have in the “K” folder, I have a private folder in the bookmarks root folder that contains shortcuts in the form of club (acg:), initials of local library (scl:), software and filename (ff: %S. xl: %S) software & person (xlcp:, xldd:), bank (initils:).  I might suffix some operations to clubs initials such s acg:u (update club website), acg:d (disk original of site).  So it is easy to remember lots of additional keywords by their initials.

Some bookmarklets included in the K folder (#customize)

Some bookmarklets were inclued in the above and won't work, the bookmarklets below are are working correctly and you can copy them from below.
Bookmarklets;  There are a lot of links on this page.  The following BookMarklets (Favelets) will distinguish between internal or external links.  First click on "highlight links",  and then on "int/ext links".  Your browser's Reset button (F5) will reload the original unmodified web page.
