Correct behavior:  go to manage bookmarks, choose a bookmark, edit its 
properties, and fill in a word in the "custom keyword" field.  Now when you type 
that word into the URL bar and press enter, it should take you directly to that 
bookmarked web page.

As described in bug 18719, correct behavior for internet keywords is to first 
check the bookmark custom keyword list and if not there, then go to the keyword 
server.  Right now, it just goes to the keyword server.

Assigning to Judson Valeski since this may be in the web shell and cc'ing RJC 
since he is the guy who implemented custom keywords.

Hmmm... this works for me in a build on Win98 from the early morning of 
2/23/2000.

I think this no longer has anything to do with valeski
Current behavior: I have no idea why this is so but maybe the error code will mean a lot to you. Currently on all platforms, if you 
modify the custom keyword property of an existing bug and then try that keyword, all works fine.
However, if you create a new bookmark, give it a title, url, and keyword, when ou try that custom keyword you get the following 
error:
Alert: NC is not a registered protocol

Because the browser url field looks like it just tried to load NC:BookmarksRoot#$12abcdef

where 12abcdef is a hexadecimal number

all platforms, 2000022408 builds

this is fixed only because you can no longer specify a keyword upon new bookmark creation. VERIFIED with the 2000033009
