That's a bug...

You can edit the website's name and export, but it won't preserve any edits made to the website's URL if you export. The only way around it is to search for the file bookmarks.plist (located in your Application Data\Apple Computer\Safari folder) and send it instead of exporting. That's the actual file Safari uses, and importing it will properly display all changes you made to the bookmarks.

Hope this helps,

the desktop or a zip/rar archive?

or can a browser like firefox import a file with that .plist (or whatever it is) extension?
