    Code for saving to favorites

    Can anyone please let me know the all-browser compatible code for someone clicking on a button to save the page to their favorites ?

    Any help appreciated.

    I hate to say it Dez, but there isn't one. And the ones that do work, only work in Internet Explorer (go figure), if at all.

    Other than educating the visitor as to how to use the bookmarks/favorites feature in their browser, not really.

    I'm sure you have honourable intentions with this, but imagine how it would be abused by nefarious individuals! You'd click on an innocent-looking link and be presented with a page with lots of young ladies with no clothes on. Quickly hitting the Back button before your boss sees what you're up to, you'd think you got away with your little mistake ... until someone finds www.DebbieDoesDallas.com in your list of bookmarks and you find yourself at the end of the dole queue.

    In short: it's a security thing.

    Or worse yet, links to the Admiral and Blackjacks Gentleman's Club in your bookmarks (trying to keep it street-legal here).

    There is this bookmark script that I found at Kravvitz's site.

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for or not? Hope it is useful to you.
