<p>Here's the procedure for installation. <b>Please note</b> that the syntax
for XUL (Mozilla's user interface language) has changed recently, and the
preferences window here will only work for the old syntax - so 0.8.1 builds
will be OK, but more recent nightly builds will not work.  <a

<li>Firstly <a href="#" onclick="triggerURL('');">install the package</a>, now at version 0.2.
<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:
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:
<li>You will need to have an account with an annotation server.
To try the W3C test server, get an account at <a href=""></a>.
<li>There is currently <a href="">a bug</a> which means that user names containing a + character (and presumably other characters requiring URL-escaping) will NOT work.
<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="">the Annotea page</a>.
<li>You can also configure:
<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. This is significantly slower.
