Using the W3C cheatsheet as a “smart bookmark”

Filed under:

One of the users of the W3C cheatsheet (of which a new version was released yesterday including HTML5) reminded me of a nifty feature available in a number of browsers, the so called “smart bookmarks”, and how they could be used with the cheatsheet.

A smart bookmark is basically a bookmark where a part of the URL can be replaced by a user entered string; depending on the browser, this smart bookmark can then be invoked with a said string to bring you directly to a specific page (often, a search result).
