Reset Safari 6.0 bookmarks to default?

Does anyone know how I can accomplish resetting Safari's bookmarks to the default bookmark list/bookmark bar that comes pre-set with Safari?

First quit Safari. Then click on the desktop to bring focus to the Finder. Hit shift-command-g (all three at once) and enter ~/Library/Safari in the popup and hit enter. In the folder you see delete the file Bookmarks.plist. Now restart Safari and you will have defaults.

Thank you SO VERY much. It worked beautifully.
