Add Me To Your Favourites

I need to send a link in an email which on the other end will create a favourite in in the recipients IE. I've googled around this and found lots of resources on adding a favourite from a website but they all seem to assume the recipient is on the right page already. I'm using Outlook 2007 if it's relevant. (Bit dull as a question I know but I've been wrestling with this all morning)

Making Firefox Copy and Paste HTML Code?

Is there a Firefox extension — preferably a Firefox 2 extension — that will alter Firefox's copying behavior so that, when you copy something, it is copied to the clipboard (or pasted from the clipboard) as its HTML, instead of plain text? [more inside]

How Can I Make a Long List of URLs Clickable?

MakeMyPhotosClickableFilter: I have a list of URLs that is about 2000 long. The problem is that none of them begin with http:// and are therefore not "clickable." I need to post this list on my website and allow people to click on the links, rather than cut n paste and have them add the http:// ..... What method could I use to add the http:// and make it "clickable" without actually typing it into each url one-by-one (which would take me forever). Examples of the URLs are below (they are non-working, I just made them up - but are similar to the long list I have)..... img301.imageshack.us/img301/7323/freepic26nt.jpg images3.theimagehosting.com/albums/754/5088064.jpg Is there *anything* I could use, paste my list into, etc. that would automatically make them clickable?

crown and anchor me

Can someone give this HTML idiot an answer in plain English. I don't understand the responses on similar topics that are already on this site! Is there some way - preferably on BBEdit on the Mac - of automatically converting every instance of http://www.whateverurl.com in my html file into properly anchored code, ie: http://www.whateverurl.com?

HTML issues

HTML crisis: I use relative URLS on my blog because pages archive in different files- for example, a tag for a JPEG would be /images/image.jpg inside image tags. Because I use that first slash to make the relative URL work, all image tags are broken when you type or link to my site without a "www" in the url. In other words, "www.mysite.com" shows all the images fine, but "mysite.com" loads the site with little red x's everywhere. Solution? [more inside]
