   14: <p><b>Installation</b></p>
   15: <p><b><u>Please note</u></b> that Annozilla v0.3 requires a Mozilla build
   16: of 0.9 or better.</p>
   18: <ul>
   19: <li>Firstly <a href="#" onclick="triggerURL('');">install the package</a>, now at version 0.3.
   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:
   22: <pre>chrome://annozilla/content/addpanel.xul</pre>
   23: This will add Annozilla to your sidebar panel.
   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=""></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.
   29: <li>If you are using the W3C test server, then you can probably find some annotations attached to <a href="">the Annotea page</a>.
   30: </ul>
   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.
   35: <li>whether to load annotation bodies in an area of the sidebar, or in a new window
   36: </ul>
   37: <li>For languages, the options are these:
   38: <ul>
   39: <li>You can specify "only view annotations in my preferred language". This only
   40: affects annotations which have a language specified.
   41: <li>You can decide whether or not to view annotations without any language information specified. (At the moment only Annozilla specifies the language of annotations).
   42: </ul>
   43: </ul>
   44: <!--
   45: <hr>
   46: <h2><a name="prefs"></a>Setting your preferences manually</h2>
   47: <p>If you can't use the preferences window because your Mozilla build is
   48: incompatible with your Annozilla build, you can set your preferences manually
   49: if you know how to find your <b>prefs.js</b> file. Just edit the file (while
   50: Mozilla is shut down) and add the following lines:</p>
   51: <pre>
   52: user_pref("annozilla.annotationAuthor", "[your full name]");
   53: user_pref("annozilla.annotationAutoLoad", false);
   54: user_pref("annozilla.annotationInsertIcons", false);
   55: user_pref("annozilla.annotationLoadInNewWindow", true);
   56: user_pref("annozilla.annotationPassword", "[your password]");
   57: user_pref("annozilla.annotationServer", "[annotation server]");
   58: user_pref("annozilla.annotationUser", "[your user account]");
   59: </pre>
