<p id="intro">This is the <b>Annozilla</b> project, designed to view and
create annotations associated with a web page, as defined by the <a
href="http://www.w3.org/2001/Annotea/">W3C Annotea project</a>. The idea is to
store annotations as RDF on a server, using XPointer (or at least XPointer-like
constructs) to identify the region of the document being annotated.</p>
<p>The intention of Annozilla is to use Mozilla's native facilities to
manipulate annotation data - its built-in RDF handling to parse the
annotations, and nsIXmlHttpRequest to submit data when creating
annotations.</p>
<p>To use Annozilla, you will need to <a href="installation/">install the
packages</a>, get set up with a user account with an annotation server <a
href="http://annotest.w3.org/access">(e.g., the W3C test server)</a>, and then
you should be ready to start using the extension. There is a <a href="manual/en-US/index.xhtml">draft
of a manual</a> available on this site to describe how to use the extension. Please
feel free to address any comments on this manual to the <a href="/list.html">mailing list</a>.</p>
