On the validator site, there's a menu to the right, with among the 
choses, "Favelets". Now, providing this is all good, I think, but why 
not stick to the old reliable term "Bookmarklets"? For one, most 
browsers calls it bookmarks, not favorites. In the real world, the term 
favelet is almost unknown (see 
<http://www.googlefight.com/cgi-bin/compare.pl?q1=bookmarklet&q2=favelet&B1=Make+a+fight%21&compare=1&langue=us>). 
   Also, the page feels too much an excuse for Tantek to link to his site.

So, why not go with the name almost everyone uses, and call it 
bookmarklets instead?
