Just wanted to add that XBEL including DTD and tools is already
shipped hidden within the python-xml package: Have a look at
python ns_parse.py ~/.netscape/bookmarks.html >/tmp/bookmarks.xbel
python xbel2html.py /tmp/bookmarks.xbel >/tmp/bookmarks.html
would convert your Netscape bookmarks into a common XBEL format (XBEL
being an XML document type) and then into a HTML page.
python xbel_parse --lynx /tmp/lynx </tmp/bookmarks.xbel
would convert the bookmarks into lynx' format.
Where xbel2html.py has only 100 lines and is as configurable as it
