sharing URL's?

I want to e-mail someone a list of some of my favorite URLs.  I've got them saved in my 'Favorites' but I can't find that folder in 'Windows Explorer'. What's the best way to e-mail someone a list of my favorite URLs?

RE: sharing URL's?

Two ways:

If you wish to send your entire bookmarks file, it is stored as bookmark.htm in C:\Program Files\Netscape\Users\[profilename]\  where [profilename] is your username ¦ profilename.  It is often left as 'default' or the part of your e-mail address before the '@'.  You could simply attach it to an e-mail and away you go.


If you want to clean it up before you send it, to remove items that won't be of interest to your correspondent, pull down the bookmarks list and choose Edit bookmarks.  Immediately choose file, save as, and save the file to an easy to remember directory such as My Documents or My Files with a new name, like outmarks.htm (remember to keep the .htm).  Choose  File, Open bookmarks file to open your new bookmark file and edit it to remove those items you don't wish to send.  Save it again and attach it to your e-mail.

Good Luck!
