Bookmarks in Color?

I would like some of my bookmarks, and passwords for bookmarks, to 
appear and be printed in red. Any way to do this?

Export your bookmarks into bookmark.html then modify this web page ...

Does this help?

Export the bookmarks into the bookmarks.html file.
Open it in a text editor.
Edit the bookmarks.
Save the file.

I'm not sure if importing the file back into SeaMonkey would overwrite 
the bookmarks or make duplicates.

I tried Notepad and Word. Too much coding for me to try and pick out 
bookmarks. Am I doing it right?

As Walt said, "text editor." Use Notepad. You don't want to be doing 
coding in any word processor.

I ended up with four copies of my Bookmarks in my Bookmarks file by 
repeatedly re-importing old copies of Bookmarks file back into my main 
Bookmarks file!!

I believe importing from the exported HTML file will erase your browsing
history.  Furthermore, I do not think changes to the HTML (e.g., color)
will import and might even corrupt the import.

You could always save the modified bookmarks.html as a local file and 
bookmark it, then open it in the browser and go from there.

The downside, of course, is that you couldn't easily add bookmarks as 
you do with SM's native bookmark database. You'd have to edit 
bookmarks.html with a text editor as you just did.

My recommendation is to drag your favorite bookmarks up to the top of 
the list (in the Bookmark Manager) and organize the rest into folders so 
you can find them easily. No colors, sorry.

Importing HTML bookmarks appends.  It does not overwrite.

It's a one-way action .... colors will not be present if you import your 
modified html file.

AnyWay, what part of bookmarks did you want to have a red-color attribute ?

When I print the whole list, I'd like some bookmark titles and extra 
info about them to be in red.

Perhaps copy/paste the html file into WORD then select text and modify 
the foreground color ?

Only if it is just to be printed. You won't be able to re-import the file 
into the browser as Word will add so much word-processing code to the file 
it will be rendered useless for the browser.

For bookmarks, have you considered adding comments instead of
color-coding?  A comment can be something simple such as #, $, %, *, A,
x, etc, to flag the bookmark.

To add a comment:

1.  On the SeaMonkey menu bar, select [Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks].

2.  On the Bookmarks Manager window, select any single bookmark and then
select the More button near the bottomm-left of the right-hand pane.

3.  Now select any single bookmark that you wish to highlight.  In the
Description area, type a character.

NOTE:  The Description area appears only when a single bookmark is
selected.  Whatever you enter will appear below the bookmark.

Alternatively, you can append -- with leading spaces -- flagging
characters at the end of the names of bookmarks.  In this case, what you
enter will appear on the same line as the bookmark.

Whichever way you do this, the characters you enter will appear whenever
you export your bookmarks to an HTML file.  I export my bookmarks every
time I terminate SeaMonkey.  In my profile, I inserted the following
into file user.js:
	user_pref("browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML", true);
	// automatically export bookmarks into an HTML file
The semi-colon (;) at the end of the first line is mandatory.  The
second line is merely a comment -- indicated by the double virgules (//)
at the beginning -- to remind me why I have this.

As for your passwords, there is no equivalent.  I would question
printing out your passwords from SeaMonkey unless you are going to
deposit the printout in a safe deposit box at a bank.

On the other hand, if you have passwords for sites where you do not have
critical data (e.g., not  personal or financial), you might try
something similar to what I do.  When I set such a password, I first
enter it into a text file before entering it into SeaMonkey.  My text
file does not allow colors, but you could use a Word file that allows
the use of colors.  Just remember that this is not appropriate for
passwords you want to keep secure.

I have three lists of passwords on my PC:

*  One is plain text for passwords for sites where logging-on merely
brings up the settings I want to use.  These generally are for
site-specific forums.   I do not care if someone discovers these
passwords.

*  The second is also plain text but saved with strong encryption.  This
too is for sites where logging-on merely brings up the settings I want
but could be subject to serious malicious actions by others.  These are
generally for sites where I make purchases.

*  The third is a spread sheet that is also saved with strong
encryption.  This is for financial services, modem, router, utilities,
Medicare, Social Security, ISPs, etc, sites where I could lose
significant funds or suffer identity theft.  I change these passwords at
last annually, and no two sites have the same passwords.

NOTE:  All three lists contain passwords that are NOT dictionary words.
They are random strings of letters, numbers, and symbols.  I do not need
dictionary words if I have these lists.

I see that does work, but I have 99 pages of BM's. I only need a fairly 
small number to be in red, so I'll have to play with this a bit. Thanks.

I do use the description area for passwords. It's a great way to keep 
track of passwords for each site. I also export my bookmarks to an html 
file upon closing SM. I would just like some in red to designate 
important ones. Copying them from html to Word seems to be one good way 
to do it.

Beyond Meat and other such vegetarian meat substitutes
represent the ultimate in ultra-processed foods.  Real
meat is natural.  Beyond Meat is definitely not.  No,
I do NOT own a cattle ranch, a butcher shop, or any
other business doing commerce in meat.
