  • When Internet Explorer imports your bookmarks, it does not modify your original Netscape Navigator bookmarks file.
  • Netscape Navigator bookmarks are usually stored in an HTML file named Bookmark.htm.
  • You can import bookmarks either from Netscape Navigator running on the same computer, or from another computer by importing the bookmarks HTML file from a floppy disk or network folder.
