I think I have found an answer (well, sort of) on the Macromedia site, contained within their 'extensions' for Dreamweaver.
Sorry for the 'longhand link', but the pages containing the script are dynamically generated:
www.macromedia.com > Resources > Dreamweaver resources > select 'all categories > on the first page is an extension called 'add to faves'.
You have to 'register' with the site to download the extension.
It is a means to an end, but I can see a couple of limitations:
Firstly, it seems as though the actual link has to be placed at the top of the HTML page. If this isn't done, the page content itself obscures the guidance text potentially leaving the user a bit confused as to what has just happened!
Secondly, it bookmarks an individual page only rather than a frameset.
Because I am extremely 'Java challenged' I wondered if it could be configured to use an 'absolute' external URL to bookmark a frameset or if the script could be amended to allow placement of the 'add to favorite' link anywhere on the page.
If you good people find this of use, I would be extremely grateful for guidance on how to amend the script to work as described above.
I was considering pasting the script into a posting, but wasn't sure if this was ethical as I am obviously not the author of this extension.
all the best
I much appreciate your quest. Many of us have been on it -- but the news has always been the same.
