Enter and edit your bookmarks and headings, one per line. A bookmark consists of a name, followed by a space, followed by a URL. The URL must start with http:// or https:// . . .
A heading is a line that does not have a URL on it . . .
Use blank lines to add white space between bookmarks and headings. You can add highlighting options to your bookmarks and headings, and you can include variables in the URL's. See the Bookmark
Highlights or Bookmark Variables help pages.
Place highlighting options after a heading or bookmark name. Heading options are: /i /n /t. Bookmark options are: /b /i /d /a /n. These options are
not checked for validity. They are used as an option if they are correct, and if not recognized, they are assumed to be part of the heading or bookmark name. This means you can still have a heading or bookmark name like "Cats /
Dogs". See the Bookmark Highlights help page.
