Creating NextarisPages bookmark on a Treo (one-time only):
You need to first create a Bookmark on your Treo that contains the correct javascript. You only need to do this once and then you can easily surf the Web and capture any Web page directly to your folders (Note: this only works for Web pages; NextarisClippings and NextarisImages does not work on the Treo due to javascript limitations of the Palm OS)
The following steps save you typing but are still somewhat involved, so follow them carefully.
1. On your Treo, start the Blazer browser and go to this URL:
http://mobile.nextaris.com/treo.html
A web page will load that has a long javascript statement
2. click on Blazer in the upper left of your Treo screen
3. click on Edit
4. click on Select All...
5. click on Blazer and then Edit again
6. click on Copy
7. click on Blazer and Page, then Add Bookmark
8. a New Bookmark window opens on your Treo.
9. enter a name, for example NextarisPages
10. Enter a Description, for example, Capture Web Pages
11. click in the URL: area and a Set URL sub-window opens with four button at the bottom -- click the Clear button and then back arrow until the text area is empty (no http://)
12. click the top bar in the Set URL window and a list of Edit options opens.
13. tap the Paste option and the Set URL text area should now have the above complete javascript in it ending with 'n','')) -- if that is not the case, click the Cancel buttons and repeat from step 1 making sure you Select All and Copy.
14. click OK to close the Set URL text area
15. click OK to close the New Bookmark window
16. click OK to close the Edit Bookmark List

Capturing Web pages directly from your Treo to your Nextaris Folders (on-going)
Log in to Nextaris using your Treo and search for or go directly to any web page/URL. When you find a page you want to save to a Nextaris folder you are now ready to use the Bookmark created above.
1. click on Blazer (upper left)
2. click on Bookmark View (not Add Bookmark)
3. A menu of your Bookmarks appears -- click on the bookmark created above, e.g., NextarisPages
4. Your Treo will go into "Sending..." mode
5. a Nextaris page will load with a Cache checkbox
--check the Checkbox if you want to save a permanent (cached) copy of this web page
--add a Comment if appropriate
--select a folder from the pull-down menu "Select a Folder to save to"
--click the Add URL button (this will save this web page to your Nextaris folder).
That's all there is to it! That web page is now in your selected Nextaris folder.

NOTE: a brief message will display and then the Treo window will return to step 5. At this juncture click the back arrow on the Blazer browser once to return to the Google results page (or your original page).
If you click the Blazer back arrow twice more, this will take you back to the Nextaris Search page (Google). From the pull-down menu you can select Folders, and navigate to the folder to which you saved the web page (step 5), and open that folder by clicking the title of the folder. You will see the web page in the folder.
