    I have this code:

    <hr><a href=": Bookmark What is a HBA?"
       ONCLICK='window.external.AddFavorite("http://www.tech-faq.com/hba.shtml","What is a HBA?");
                return false'>
       Bookmark <b>What is a HBA?</b>
    </a>
    Code (markup):
    Which generates errors like this in my Apache error logs:


    Can someone please lend me a clue? :confused: :( :confused:

    I don't know about the errors but my code is different.

    <a href="http://www.yoururl.com/" onclick="return external.AddFavorite(location.href, document.title)">Add to My Favorites!</a>
    Code (markup):
    But then again, it only works in IE. Perhaps this might help you. Dunno.

    I changed this line of code:
    <hr><a href=": Bookmark What is a HBA?"
    Code (markup):
    To this:
    <hr><a href=""
    Code (markup):
    I no longer get the cool status bar message, but I also no longer get all of those annoying error messages.

    I believe that I could add the status bar message back in using an ONMOUSEOVER, but strangely it's not worth the extra line of code to me.

    Here is one that puts a reminder to bookmark for Gecko, and does what you have above for IE:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!--
    if (navigator.appName=="Netscape") {
     document.write (
       '<span class=\"style34\">To bookmark Page,<br> click: '
      +'<b>Bookmarks | Add bookmark</b> <br>'
      +'or press <b>Ctrl+D</b>.</span>'
     )
    }
    else if (parseInt(navigator.appVersion)>3) {
     document.write (''
      +'<a onMouseOver="self.status=\'Bookmark this site\'" '
      +' onMouseOut="self.status=\'\'" '
      +' href="javascript:window.external.AddFavorite'
      +'(\'http://www.yoursite.com/id03.html\','
      +'\'Page title Yall come back now, y\'hear\')">'
      +'Bookmark this Page</a>.'
     )
    }
    //-->
    </script>
    Code (markup):
    example here, under the nav bar towards right:

    Nice code. That'll work except for those that code just enough room for "Bookmark" text and not all that text for reminding.
