i would back up the existing database
import that one ,then EXPORT it as a html file
then export your normal database as an html
then merge the two

or
and this will just add the new ones in unlabled
export the new one as html
then on the normal database import the new html file

that should just add the new bookmarks to the old file
but the order it is in ?????
