   14: <p><b>Installation</b></p>
   15: <p><b><u>Please note</u></b> that the syntax
   16: for XUL (Mozilla's user interface language) has changed recently, and the
   17: preferences window here will only work for the old syntax - so 0.8.1 builds
   18: will be OK, but 0.9 builds will not work. The forthcoming 0.3 release will work
   19: in 0.9. <a href="#prefs">See below for how to set your preferences
   20: manually.</a></p>
   21: 
   22: <ul>
   23: <li>Firstly <a href="#" onclick="triggerURL('http://annozilla.mozdev.org/annozilla.xpi');">install the package</a>, now at version 0.2.
   24: <li>Next you will have to <b>restart your browser</b>.
   25: <li>If this is the first time you have installed Annozilla, go to this URL:
   26: <pre>chrome://annozilla/content/addpanel.xul</pre>
   27: This will add Annozilla to your sidebar panel.
   28: <li>Finally go to the preferences window (Edit -&gt; Preferences -&gt; Annozilla) and set the server, user name and password. Please note:
   29: <ul>
   30: <li>You will need to have an account with an annotation server.
   31: To try the W3C test server, get an account at <a href="http://annotest.w3.org/access">http://annotest.w3.org/access</a>.
   32: <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.
   33: <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>.
   34: </ul>
   35: <li>You can also configure:
   36: <ul>
   37: <li>whether the annotations, when you select them, appear in an area in the sidebar, or in a new browser window
   38: <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.
   39: <li>whether to load annotation bodies in an area of the sidebar, or in a new window
   40: </ul>
   41: </ul>

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