<!-- MAIN CONTENT -->
<h2>Installation</h2>
<p><b><u>Please note</u></b> that Annozilla v0.3 requires a Mozilla build
of 0.9 or better; but that it will not work with 0.9.6 and above.</p>

<ul>
<li>Firstly <a href="#" onclick="triggerURL('http://annozilla.mozdev.org/annozilla.xpi');">install the package</a>, now at version 0.3.
<li>Next you will have to <b>restart your browser</b>.
<li>If this is the first time you have installed Annozilla, go to this URL:
<pre>chrome://annozilla/content/addpanel.xul</pre>
This will add Annozilla to your sidebar panel.
<li>Finally go to the preferences window (Edit -&gt; Preferences -&gt; Annozilla) and set the server, user name and password. Please note:
<ul>
<li>You will need to have an account with an annotation server.
To try the W3C test server, get an account at <a href="http://annotest.w3.org/access">http://annotest.w3.org/access</a>.
<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.
<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>.
</ul>
<li>You can also configure:
<ul>
<li>whether the annotations, when you select them, appear in an area in the sidebar, or in a new browser window
<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.
<li>whether to load annotation bodies in an area of the sidebar, or in a new window
</ul>
<li>For languages, the options are these:
<ul>
<li>You can specify "only view annotations in my preferred language". This only
affects annotations which have a language specified.
<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).
</ul>
</ul>

<h2><a name="prefs"></a>Setting your preferences manually</h2>
<p>If you can't use the preferences window because your Mozilla build is
incompatible with your Annozilla build, you can set your preferences manually
if you know how to find your <b>prefs.js</b> file. Just edit the file (while
Mozilla is shut down) and add the following lines:</p>
<pre>
user_pref("annozilla.annotationAuthor", "[your full name]");
user_pref("annozilla.annotationAutoLoad", false);
user_pref("annozilla.annotationInsertIcons", false);
user_pref("annozilla.annotationLoadInNewWindow", true);
user_pref("annozilla.annotationPassword", "[your password]");
user_pref("annozilla.annotationServer", "[annotation server]");
user_pref("annozilla.annotationUser", "[your user account]");
</pre>
