Spacing issues.

You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
long and short of it:

<blockquote>
Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a
central server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.
</blockquote>

<p>I have a server which is currently using a hacked up protocol based on
FTP.  I have since learned why no-one uses a protocol from the 1970's if
they can help it: the code is going to go away and be replaced with XML-RPC,
which is both simpler and more intelligent.  Dunno anything about SOAP, but
since it's not out of committee yet, I'm not going to worry about it.

<p>Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does do XML-RPC queries.
If you enjoy pain or would like to help, then you can pick up the code from
<a href="/source/browse/bookie/clients/mozilla/extensions/bookie/resources">here</a>.
Thanks to Aaron Andersen for the cool <a

<p>You do have to have the XML-RPC extensions to use the client.  Go to your
mozilla/extensions/xml-rpc directory and <code>"nmake -f
makefile.win"</code> should take care of the problem.

<p>Using the server requires

<a href="http://www-uk.hpl.hp.com/people/bwm/rdf/jena/">Jena</a>, <a
href="http://classic.helma.at/hannes/xmlrpc/">XMLRPC-Java</a>, <a
href="http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/docs/index.html">Log4j</a>, and <a
href="http://www.junit.org/">Junit</a>.  At least.  I've been using JBuilder
and haven't bothered to put together an <a
href="http://jakarta.apache.org/ant/index.html">Ant</a> script.  If someone
does, please mail it to me.

<p>Suggestions and comments are welcome.
