This is probably really easy, but I don't know the answer:

How do you make your site bookmarkable? I am talking about having a button or link on your page that will let someone bookmark your page right there, instead of doing it the conventional way.

This will work in IE but not NS:

<A href="javascript:window.external.AddFavorite('http://www.yourdomain.com/', 'Your Title');"

From what I can tell, there is no auotmatic bookmarking script for Netscape. The best you can do is sniff the browser, and then either auto-bookmark the page for MSIE or post an alert message to Netscape users asking them to press OK, then ctrl D.

Here's a link to an example [dsigning.com].
