Dear Experts

I am looking for some code that will add a page to favourites.  Most importantly the page is not the current page.  I have been trying to adapt this piece of code:

<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="Add to Favorites" onClick='window.external.AddFavorite(location.href, document.title);'>

but cannot seem to get it to work & woudl like to add the following site "www.bbc.co.uk" with a name of BBC

Can anybody help?

Are you telling me that you tried:
 
<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="Add to Favorites" onClick='window.external.AddFavorite("http://www.bbc.co.uk/", "BBC");'>

Open in new window


And it didn't work?  (Remember, this code only works in IE).
