This article should cover how to get data (or bookmarks, at least) from Firefox to Internet Explorer.

Essentially, the opposite of http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Importing+from+Internet+Explorer
Severity: normal → minor
I'd be willing to pick this one up.

I feel I have created this article properly.  Someone drop some comments as this is my first article on support.mozilla.com.
Are bookmarks the only thing that can be exported?
I don't see any options for exporting cookies and/or favorites.  I'm looking right now.
I just did a good bit of searching and have come to the conclusion that exporting cookies from Firefox into a format that IE can import is not support yet.
I just realised I should check that this works in IE7.
I just added the IE7 screenshot.
Okay, so it's just bookmarks. 
I'll tweak up the syntax, and move it to the KB. If we find more pieces of Firefox profile info can be exported to IE, we can add them.

Also feel free to crop some of the screenshots. If we can save on the time it takes for a dialup user to download the page, that helps.

What happens to live bookmarks in IE?

David, thank you very much for your help! Much appreciated. :)
I do a lot of this at work so it was a pleasure to use some of that experience for the Mozilla community.  Hopefully I'll get time to do a few more.
