In addition to what Vincenzo said, you may come across a bug where IE7 says
that the file exported from IE8 is not a valid bookmark file.
The answer is to open the file in Notepad and do a Save-As and choose ANSI
as the file type...

Yes. If you're using the Favorites Import/Export wizard, check out this
article first.
