          Yes. There's nothing special about bookmarklets. They are simply
          JavaScript routines that you assign as a bookmark. As far as the browser
          is concerned, a bookmarklet is just another bookmark. If a page starts
          loading and you click a bookmark to go to another page, it stops loading
          the current page and goes to the bookmarked page. It's the same with
          bookmarklets.

            Thanks gary - I pretty much thought this was what was happening - ie; it
            just gets treated like any other request. As though I had clicked a bookmark
            to another website. I was hoping there was some special technique or method
            I could use - sounds like there isn't.

            thanks again.
