Dates in bookmark file

By cutie_pyie ·
I had a heck of a time getting here and I hope this is the correct place to post a question, even though the instructions on this site don't say so.
Anyway, I have a user who wants to know what the dates in his navigator bookmark file mean. Can anyone help to decipher these mystic/cryptic dates in the netscape navigator bookmark.html file??
The user wants to creat his own bookmark file using a DB and wants to know if he must really put in these dates?

Thanks for ur help in this matter!

Sincerely, Cutie_pyie

Example of bookmark entries:

<DT><A HREF="" ADD_DATE="940754498" LAST_VISIT="940754453" LAST_MODIFIED="940754453">Welcome to PC World Online</A>

<DT><A HREF="" ADD_DATE="942739678" LAST_VISIT="942739664" LAST_MODIFIED="942739664">Welcome to ValuPage -- Please enter a zip code</A>

<DT><A HREF="" ADD_DATE="921981186" LAST_VISIT="921981979" LAST_MODIFIED="921981128">Welcome to! The best 32-bit Shareware, Drivers, Tips, and Information on the Internet!</A>

Thanks again---CP

CP...At first glance I would suspect the numbers correspond to the date in hexidecimal. I suppose I could dig up an old hex converter and test this assumption. I think the more important question is whether the user can create a DB for his/her bookmarks. I do not believe the date stamps are necessary. Hope this helps.
