Ha!  Touche.  But we call them "links", not hyperreferences...   :^)

I also don't understand the idea that they must be called Favorites (erm,
Bookmarks) because they're re-usable.  The "real" CMS I use uses Links, and
they're re-usable.  Adobe InDesign calls them Links, and they're reusable.

To preset the other side (just because I'm that kind of guy), Adobe
Dreamweaver calls them Favorites.
