Improving tab/chord functionality

Hey dudes
I have taken to bookmarking tabs/chord charts on this website so that I can quickly get back to them, but it's a bit annoying that I have to work out the correct key and then use the 'transpose' feature each time I open them (especially so since I want to play along with a whole album without stopping between tracks, so that's 12 pages I have to correct).
The site would be easier to use if it remembered what transposition settings I have on each tab - I'd think this would be easy enough to implement.

Another thing - when transposing chord charts up or down there will often be more sharps or flats, and this can cause problems because it seems that the software automatically uses sharps instead of flats - often this is incorrect and I will find a D followed by a D# chord, where there should be an Eb. Using the wrong sign can make it much harder to read.

I would suggest the implementation of a feature which lets the user toggle whether the chords are displayed as sharps or flats, a button next to the transpose feature perhaps.

I haven't used IE since the mid-sixties... search around near the address bar, the icon for bookmarks might look like a star, iirc. I think theres a menu that appears next to the your history.
