I'm thinking of adding the ability to launch bookmarks to Arrow Launcher. The question is how to store bookmarks.

All the browsers I've looked at seem to have different formats for storing bookmarks, so I'm not going to try to pull bookmarks out of them.

Assuming I can figure out how to access the memo database, I'm going to set a format that you can store bookmarks in a bookmark memo. That way, it should be easy to edit - particularly on the desktop.

the question is on format. I see two options
1 - html. simple html format like this

<a href="http://pluggedin.palmone.com/regac/pluggedin/login.jsp">PluggedIn: Member Login</a>
<a href="http://palmone.participate.com/pe/forums/displaymsgboardlist.jsp">HS developers forum</a>

advantage - many browsers will output bookmarks in html
disadvantage - a bit fiddly

2 - simpler format

HS developers forum <> http://palmone.participate.com/pe/fo...gboardlist.jsp

advantage a bit easier
disadvantage - non-standard

what do people think?
I don't promise to follow the poll - but I will be particularly interested in the comments.
