IE8 Favorites Bar emulation

Is there a way to emulate the Favorites Bar in IE8?

Nevermind, I fingered it out: you edit the tab URL by clicking the star in the URL window, and put the URL into the Bookmarks Toolbar folder. Presto bingo! Voila there’s a Favorites Bar icon now all by its lonesome for that website.

Sneaky.

EDIT: discovered that all of my Favorite Bar icon URL live in the IE8 Favorite folder called LINKS. Dunno if this was automagically maintined by IE, but that’s where I found my Favoite Bar animals. I just click on 'em eaches and CID Bookmark Toolbar 'em.
