Googling led me to this page where the author had the same problem, and they found a solution in Safari Bookmarks Extractor. I can't test that it still works with version changes in both, but it probably does. Once you have your extracted bookmarks, you just use Manage Bookmarks -> File -> Import -> From File.
Had to signup with Earthlink for the DSL, anyways, it's not cooperating with my Belkin router. Earthlink won't help. Belkin is closed. Anyone? it seems to not be acknowlede the router. or vice versa. me confused.
