   18: <p><b>Installation</b></p>
   19: <p>Here's the procedure for installation. <b>Please note</b> that the syntax
   20: for XUL (Mozilla's user interface language) has changed recently, and the
   21: preferences window here will only work for the old syntax - so 0.8.1 builds
   22: will be OK, but more recent nightly builds will not work.  <a
   23: href="mailto:matthew@mjwilson.demon.co.uk">Mail me</a> if this is a
   24: problem.</p>
   25: 
   26: <ul>
   27: <li>Firstly <a href="#" onclick="triggerURL('http://annozilla.mozdev.org/annozilla.xpi');">install the package</a>.
   28: <li>Next you will have to restart your browser.
   29: <li>Now go to this URL:
   30: <pre>chrome://annozilla/content/addpanel.xul</pre>
   31: This will add Annozilla to your sidebar panel.
   32: <li>Finally go to the preferences window (Edit -&gt; Preferences -&gt; Annozilla) and set the server, user name and password. Please note:
   33: <ul>
   34: <li>You will need to have an account with an annotation server.
   35: To try the W3C test server, get an account at <a href="http://annotest.w3.org/access">http://annotest.w3.org/access</a>.
   36: <li>There is currently <a href="http://mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=260">a bug</a> which means that user names containing a + character (and presumably other characters requiring URL-escaping) will NOT work.
   37: <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.
