Despite the .html extension, bookmarks.html isn't any kind of  standard
html file. (I think its format goes back to before there really were
standards for html.)  Using a tool like Composer to edit it could cause
a lot of trouble, because Composer would try to turn it into valid (or
more valid, at least) html.

But you were only using Composer to create a blank file, which should
work ok.  You could just as easily create a new, empty text file and
name it bookmarks.html, without using Composer.
