Thanks, Godmar -- I'm working on the same thing as Anna and used your template and instructions. The test page works, but when I install the revised toolbar I'm still only seeing Keyword in the options. Any suggestions from anyone?

Use this Bookmarklet template:


and check Subject, Title, Keyword, Author, and ISBN/ISSN and arrange them in
the right order.
