Of course Bjorn you did suggest taking the On + Play combo in a previous thread
related to this same functionality :D.

I understand your concern as I use my archos in the car and train. I could put
in a top level menu named "Save Favorite," but if it has to go into sub-menus
then a YAOKC _may_ be required imo. Some may ask about deleting the favorites,
but since it is just a playlist it can be managed in the same manner as any
playlist. Unless of course someone sees the need to have both a key combo and a
supplementing menu?

I'll fix that. Thanks for looking.
