bkmrkconv project converts Mozilla's bookmarks into a series of web pages, which, by default, can mimic the style of a Yahoo-like portal.
Here are some key features of "bkmrkconv":
Small, fast and portable Perl script
Comparible with Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox etc.
Highly configurable output via a series of templates
Generate a contents page containing an entire alphabetical list of either all the links or all the sections, or none at all
Separate templates for the front page, section pages and the contents page
Include output from arbitrary commands, eg. fortune
Open sourced under the Artistic Licence
Hierarchical pages means that each page is relatively small meaning you can quickly navigate to the link you want without having to wait for 200k of tables to load
Description fields of links can be used to give more context
Can include how many links are contained in a branch

The command line syntax is:
-h, --help list the command line options
-n, --nocontents do not create a contents.html
-s, --onlysections contents page will list the sections rather than each individual link
-f, --file FILE read input from FILE rather than stdin
-d, --dir OUTPUTDIR read templates from OUTPUTDIR/src and output HTML files to
here. [Default: .]
All links are output (if the template has a < !--LINK-- >...< !--/LINK-- > section. However, if they contain a '(P)' they will be skipped. Sections containing a '(P)' are skipped entirely.
