    I happened on this by accident. Don't know if this is posted anywhere.

    I wanted to be able to use my Google bookmarks on my Droid. I found a program that imports them to the phone, but it replaces everything and I didn't want all those bookmarks in my browser.
    I exported my Google bookmarks to a HTML file and stored it on my SD card in the download folder and named it bookmarks.htm.
    I then went into the Droid browser and typed the following URL:

    content://com.android.htmlfileprovider/sdcard/download/bookmarks.htm

    I then created a bookmark of the link.

    Now, I open my browser, click on the bookmark, and all my Google Bookmark sites are displayed as links in order listed under their categories.

    I don't know if this will work on any other phone but a Motorola Droid.

    Hope you enjoy this tip.
