   13: <h2 id="experimental">Annozilla 0.5 beta installation</h2>
   14: <p>For installation of the latest experimental beta packages, <a
   15: href="/installation/">see the new installation guide</a>.</p>
   16: <p>Version 0.5 beta is experimental. It should be installed instead of version
   17: 0.3.5, not alongside it. It seems to work with Mozilla 1.6 and there is
   18: read-only annotation support for Mozilla Firefox.</p>
   20: <h2 id="stable">Annozilla 0.3.5 Installation</h2>
   21: <p>Or, if you want to install the older, and slightly rusty, version 0.3.5:</p>
   22: <ul class="spaced">
   23: <li>Firstly <a href="javascript:triggerURL('');">install the package</a>, now at version 0.3.5.
   24: <li>Please then <b>restart your browser</b> and return to this page to continue
   25: installation.
   26: <li>If this is the first time you have installed Annozilla, make sure your
   27: sidebar is visible, and go to this URL:
   28: <pre>chrome://annozilla/content/addpanel.xul</pre>
   29: This will add Annozilla to your sidebar panel.
   30: <li>Now go to the preferences window (Edit -&gt; Preferences -&gt; Annozilla) and set the server, user name and password. Please note:
   31: <ul>
   32: <li>You will need to have an account with an annotation server.
   33: To try the W3C test server, get an account at <a href=""></a>.
   34: <li>The "Server" preference should be set to the URL of the annotation server. (For example, the W3C test server is at
   35: <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.
   36: <li>If you are using the W3C test server, then you can probably find some annotations attached to <a href="">the Annotea page</a>.
   37: </ul>
   38: <li>You can also configure:
   39: <ul>
   40: <li>whether the annotations, when you select them, appear in an area in the sidebar, or in a new browser window
   41: <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.
   42: <li>whether to load annotation bodies in an area of the sidebar, or in a new window
   43: </ul>
   44: <li>For languages, the options are these:
   45: <ul>
   46: <li>You can specify "only view annotations in my preferred language". This only
   47: affects annotations which have a language specified.
   48: <li>You can decide whether or not to view annotations without any language
   49: information specified. (At the moment, I think that Annozilla is the only Annotea client which can specify the language of annotations).
   50: </ul>
   51: </ul>
