c. Turning a bookmark into a Bookmarklet

In order to this, you have to edit the bookmarklet. The URL that holds the address of the bookmark has to be deleted and replaced with the javascript code. Once this is done, you can rename the bookmarklet.

The procedure has to be repeated for each new bookmarklet that you wish to add.
