I had something in mind more like a dummy user, named 'bookmark'.

that way it could be reached through any(?) web server by hitting

perhaps a symlink into somewhere else might make it easier to reach via a
file:// URL.

as for which of netscape, lynx or whoever, my vote is 100% for ALL OF
THEM.  What I mean by this is to have a script to convert whatever data
source we create into a series of flat text files which would be placed
into the above /home/bookmark/public_html to be viewed in the browser.  A
question arises of whether to have one large file, or a hierarchical
system (or both).
