!note Bookmarklet

Let's start with one little bookmarklet. This one will add selected text to Yahoo! Notepad.
1. Drag the link !note to your Bookmarks Toolbar.
2. Select some text, click the bookmarklet, sign in (if you aren't already), choose folder and save your note.

Updated: Now it works with IE6 SP2 and you can drag it to the Links Bar. Thank you, subject m. (See comments for details.)

A beginning, but nice :)

For IE 6sp2 - the script needs:
t=document.selection.createRange();
q=t.text to work.

subject m,

Thank you for a suggestion.

liz,

I made it myself after I've heard about Yahoo! Open Shortcuts.

A slight variation:
javascript:q = location.href; if(!q){void(q=prompt('Add to Yahoo! Notepad',''))};if(q)location.href='http://notepad.yahoo.com/?v=161&DESC='+escape(q);void(0);

This adds the current URL to the notepad (I have a notepad folder called websites to visit later) so I needed this

Nice variation.
For the same purpose I use del.icio.us and 'read_later' bookmarklet:

javascript:location.href='http://del.icio.us/
USERNAME?url='+escape(location.href)+'&title=
'+escape(document.title)+'&tags=read_later'

Just replace USERNAME with your del.icio.us username.

Yahoo also has a widget to access the notepad, very functional...
