I'm still not yet convinced on the opportunity to use XBEL for the
task, but - as I said - I'm still open minded for the storage format
of the bookmarks.

But, supposing that an XBEL-compliant format would be chosen, FD.O
would be required to create a XML namespace for the desktop bookmarks.

I'll investigate more on the XBEL solution.

Kind regards,

It is against the grain of modern education to teach children to program.
What fun is there in making plans, acquiring discipline in organizing
thoughts, devoting attention to detail, and learning to be self-critical?
