   13: <h2>Annozilla 0.3.5 Installation</h2>
   14: <ul class="spaced">
   15: <li>Firstly <a href="javascript:triggerURL('');">install the package</a>, now at version 0.3.5.
   16: <li>Please then <b>restart your browser</b> and return to this page to continue
   17: installation.
   18: <li>If this is the first time you have installed Annozilla, make sure your
   19: sidebar is visible, and go to this URL:
   20: <pre>chrome://annozilla/content/addpanel.xul</pre>
   21: This will add Annozilla to your sidebar panel.
   22: <li>Now go to the preferences window (Edit -&gt; Preferences -&gt; Annozilla) and set the server, user name and password. Please note:
   23: <ul>
   24: <li>You will need to have an account with an annotation server.
   25: To try the W3C test server, get an account at <a href=""></a>.
   26: <li>The "Server" preference should be set to the URL of the annotation server. (For example, the W3C test server is at
   27: <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.
   28: <li>If you are using the W3C test server, then you can probably find some annotations attached to <a href="">the Annotea page</a>.
   29: </ul>
   30: <li>You can also configure:
   31: <ul>
   32: <li>whether the annotations, when you select them, appear in an area in the sidebar, or in a new browser window
   33: <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.
   34: <li>whether to load annotation bodies in an area of the sidebar, or in a new window
   35: </ul>
   36: <li>For languages, the options are these:
   37: <ul>
   38: <li>You can specify "only view annotations in my preferred language". This only
   39: affects annotations which have a language specified.
   40: <li>You can decide whether or not to view annotations without any language
   41: information specified. (At the moment, I think that Annozilla is the only Annotea client which can specify the language of annotations).
   42: </ul>
   43: </ul>
   45: <h2>Annozilla Annotations Service Installation</h2>
   46: <p>This is an experimental set of code that may see inclusion in
   47:       Annozilla 0.5.  You would install this <b>instead</b> of 0.3.5,
   48:       not concurrently with it.  It is currently tested to work 
   49: 		  with versions of Mozilla from 1.0 to 1.2.1. Phoenix
   50: 		  support is not yet included.  If you are brave of heart and don't mind a few
   51:       bugs, give it a try.  It adds multiple server support, local
   52:       server support, and enhanced icon insertion, among other things.</p>
   53: <ul>
   54: <li>First <a href="javascript:installPackages({'Annozilla alpha
   55: 		      test':'annozillaAlpha.xpi', 'Annotations
   56: 		      Service':'annotations.xpi', 'XPointerLib
   57: 		      0.4':''});">install the necessary packages</a>.</li>
   58: <li>Please then <b>restart your browser</b> and return to this page to continue
   59: installation.</li>
   60: <li>Now go to the preferences window (Edit -&gt; Preferences -&gt;
   61: 		    Annozilla).  The Viewing Preferences will give you
   62: 		    two options for viewing annotations.  Currently,
   63: 		    you must choose to install the annozilla sidebar
   64: 		    in order for icons to be inserted.  In the future,
   65: 		    this requirement will be unnecessary.</li>
   66: <li>Next, set up your Server Preferences.  You will need to have an account with an annotation server.
   67: To try the W3C test server, get an account at <a
   68: 		      href=""></a> You may also download or install your own server. See <a href="">the Annotea page</a> for more information.</li>
   69: <li>After you set your preferences, open up the sidebar (F9) and click on the Annozilla to
   70: 		    start viewing annotations!</li>
   71: </ul>
