John & Ed,

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll look into Foxmarks - it'll certainly help with the multiple computer situation, and Ed's suggestion of keeping bookmarks.html open all the time is certainly an option (although my bookmarks.html is so big it's a bit unwieldy).

I'm going to continue thinking about this stuff - it's been something I've been meaning to do for a long time, but real life (and other more important projects) keep intruding. The Wiki idea is just one line of enquiry I am pursuing.

Thanks again for all your help.
