Regarding Mathematica + packages on-line documentation.
Apparently a good idea, until Wolfram changes the web site structure (as
they did at least 2 times in the past (info from this newsgroup search).

I can also create the bookmarks and store them in a special workbook as I am
doing it now. For example,

  "[] Path & FileName of the current notebook ",
  StyleBox[ButtonBox["Mathematica 2.11.3",
    ButtonData:>{"2.11.3", "3.1"},
}], "Text"]

However, this is extremely time consuming & "I am trying to automate this

If you really want to bookmark something, you could always bookmark
