jBookmark - Yet another external bookmark tool for OWB OS4!

Changes in v1.1
Was crashing on startup, because it struggled with some IBrowse
tags I hadnt handled. It takes care of all IBrowse tags I know about
now, so it should be okay.
Also, it used to have hiccups on " " inside link descriptions..

Please report any other problems people! Software stays crashy
and buggy when errors arent reported! We should be nearly there!
Keep backups, and if jBookmark eats your file, theres a backup
from your previous session named "ibrowse-hotlist.html.backup"

jBookmark was designed for usage with IBrowse2.4 bookmark files.
Theres a few issues, where it turns sub groups into groups on the
next line down, and doesnt retain information such as "shortcuts" or
"show in bookmarks" options, as those werent really relevant to OWB.
So when you save your hotlist in OWB, it will lose your IBrowse

OS4, OWB, NListtree.mcc (this class is supplied with OS4 by default now)

Usage and Installation
First, copy your IBrowse bookmarks to the dir where you want to run
jBookmark from. This file is named "ibrowse-hotlist.html".

Next, edit this tooltype in OWB's icon:

You must add the full path and name of the bookmark tool, and add:
"%s %s" to the end of the line. The first %s tells my bookmark tool
which AREXX port to send OWB's commands to, and the second %s will tell
it what OWB's screen is called so it can open on the same screen.
The values are filled in automatically by OWB, so dont worry about the
strange naming of these two parameters!

So, for example:
BOOKMARKCOMMAND=work:internet/OWB/jBookmark %s %s

In OWB, selecting "External bookmark" from the "Tools" pull down menu,
or pressing RAmiga + B will open the jBookmark window. Whenever you
exit jBookmark, it will update the bookmarks file automatically. It
saves the new bookmarks to a temporary file in RAM: , so that if it
crashes for some reason, it will not wipe your existing bookmarks.
Once the write is successful, the temp RAM: file will be copied to
If you do have a problem for some reason, there is a file with
your previous bookmarks named ibrowse-hotlist.html.backup.

Subgroups are messed up sometimes.
If you use use OWB on its own screen: Iconifying OWB while the bookmarks
are still open will prevent the screen from iconifying until you
iconify jBookmarks too.
The Remove Group window has a right justified line for the group name,
but I'm too lazy to fix it. Too many projects atm.
If you find any other bugs, please email me your hotlist file with
and explanation and instructions on how to reproduce the error.
Use this software at your own risk! And keep backups!
