2006-09-15 harsha:it is only recently that i have got my hands on tkoutline.great work.i do a lot of browsing.and i feel that that tkoutline would be a great bookmark organiser...mostly because of the sheer simple commands involved in using it...contrast to the wysiwyg way.but i already have a million bookmarks in my IE.if tkoutline could import my would be marvellous.dont know whteher this was asked before.

You can then import that file into tkoutline using the File->Import from->Indented Ascii menu pick. You will end up with all the information from your favorites plus a lot of extra html junk. From there it is just a manual process of removing all the unwanted html tags.

2006-09-16 harsha: :) im sure you agree its a tedious job to remove the html junk...i was thinking just importing all the links.could it be made possible????.now that i come to think of it,...firefox plugin that will replace its own bookmark manger with tk outline would be even better great.what say you?

2006-09-18 Brian Theado: I might write some code you can use to import all the links. I have no interest in writing a firefox plugin. Maybe this weekend, I will take a look.
