Now you want good looking bookmarks, after Adobe comes out with
colored and styled ones.   I seem to remember you were quite down on the new 
additions. :-)

I haven't looked at the Context view of "bookmarks", most likely they take up screen space, 
and are copies of the same content over and over again, from page to page. This would tend 
to swell the file size, but you be very advantageous for short presentations.
