FAQ: Problems with Harry Fearnley's "Go/Baduk/WeiQi Bookmarks/Favourites"
These are some notes on problems with
Harry Fearnley's Go/Baduk/WeiQi Bookmarks/Favourites
What the Bookmarks are, and what they are not
My Bookmarks are my everday, working, bookmarks (as used by
Netscape). The descriptions that are provided for the links
are usually what the owner of the page supplies as the
contents of the HTML tag <TITLE> ... </TITLE> field.
Occasionally, I have changed this if it seemed necessary.
Categories, and "Star" Ratings: The categories that I use make
some sense to me, but I am prepared to change them if it will
help lots of other people. If you find something in the wrong
category, please tell me -- thanks. The Star ratings -- [***],
[**], [*] -- are fairly arbitrary, and reflect my prejudices!
I have not been systematic in providing Star ratings.
Avoiding duplication, and out-of-date links: I check
many of the links, by hand, about once a year -- I really
need to do this automatically -- can anyone help with a
tool to do this? (I use Netscape 6 -- probably, Netscape
Known problems -- some solutions sought
- Table of Contents: I do not provide a table of contents.
This is because of the way that Netscape handles the Bookmarks
file. If you edit the Netscape Bookmarks file to provide
internal "anchors", Netscape may display them as text when
you are using the file as real bookmarks. If you avoid this
problem, then Netscape simply removes them when it next saves
the bookmarks file (e.g. when you exit Netscape!)
- Displaying CJK (Chinese, Japanese, Korean), French, and
other non-English fonts: Sorry! Again, I do not know a simple
solution to this. The file that I supply uses "charset=UTF-8".
Some people believe that this should avoid all problems with
other European fonts -- apparently not! I notice that a
(very) few links have text in CJK which does display
OK. I have no idea why this is. If you have a solution to
this problem, and which will not make much extra work for me,
I will try and implement it -- thank you.
