1.3       matthew    14: <p><b>Installation</b></p>
1.9     ! matthew    15: <p><b><u>Please note</u></b> that Annozilla v0.3 requires a Mozilla build
        !            16: of 0.9 or better.</p>
1.3       matthew    17: 
                     18: <ul>
1.9     ! matthew    19: <li>Firstly <a href="#" onclick="triggerURL('http://annozilla.mozdev.org/annozilla.xpi');">install the package</a>, now at version 0.3.
1.6       matthew    20: <li>Next you will have to <b>restart your browser</b>.
                     21: <li>If this is the first time you have installed Annozilla, go to this URL:
1.3       matthew    22: <pre>chrome://annozilla/content/addpanel.xul</pre>
                     23: This will add Annozilla to your sidebar panel.
1.4       matthew    24: <li>Finally go to the preferences window (Edit -&gt; Preferences -&gt; Annozilla) and set the server, user name and password. Please note:
                     25: <ul>
                     26: <li>You will need to have an account with an annotation server.
                     27: To try the W3C test server, get an account at <a href="http://annotest.w3.org/access">http://annotest.w3.org/access</a>.
                     28: <li><b>NB</b> when you request the body of an annotation, you will be asked for your user name and password again, this is because the body of the annotation is retrieved by a different mechanism. You can use Password Manager to remember the values here though.
1.5       matthew    29: <li>If you are using the W3C test server, then you can probably find some annotations attached to <a href="http://www.w3.org/2001/Annotea/">the Annotea page</a>.
1.4       matthew    30: </ul>
1.7       matthew    31: <li>You can also configure:
                     32: <ul>
                     33: <li>whether the annotations, when you select them, appear in an area in the sidebar, or in a new browser window
                     34: <li>whether to (a) try to determine the text that the annotation applies to, and (b) insert an icon in the main browser window to indicate the annotation. This is significantly slower.
1.8       matthew    35: <li>whether to load annotation bodies in an area of the sidebar, or in a new window
1.7       matthew    36: </ul>

                     41: <p>If you can't use the preferences window because your Mozilla build is
                     42: incompatible with your Annozilla build, you can set your preferences manually
                     43: if you know how to find your <b>prefs.js</b> file. Just edit the file (while
                     44: Mozilla is shut down) and add the following lines:</p>
