<p><b>Installation</b></p>
<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
href="mailto:matthew@mjwilson.demon.co.uk">Mail me</a> if this is a
problem.</p>

<ul>
<li>Firstly <a href="#" onclick="triggerURL('http://annozilla.mozdev.org/annozilla.xpi');">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:
<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>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.
<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>.
