<h2>Annozilla 0.3.5 Installation</h2>
<ul class="spaced">
<li>Firstly <a href="javascript:triggerURL('');">install the package</a>, now at version 0.3.5.
<li>Please then <b>restart your browser</b> and return to this page to continue
<li>If this is the first time you have installed Annozilla, make sure your
sidebar is visible, and go to this URL:
This will add Annozilla to your sidebar panel.
<li>Now 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>The "Server" preference should be set to the URL of the annotation server. (For example, the W3C test server is at
<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.
<li>whether to load annotation bodies in an area of the sidebar, or in a new window
<li>For languages, the options are these:
<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, I think that Annozilla is the only Annotea client which can specify the language of annotations).

<h2>Annozilla Annotations Service Installation</h2>

<p>This is an <b>experimental</b> set of code that may see inclusion in
      Annozilla 0.4.  You would install this <b>instead</b> of 0.3.5,
      not concurrently with it.  It is currently tested to work 
		  with versions of Mozilla from 1.0 to 1.2.1. Phoenix
		  support is not yet included.  It adds multiple server support, local
      server support, enhanced icon insertion, and icon insertion without
		  running the sidebar, among other things.</p>

<li>First <a href="javascript:installPackages({'Annozilla 0.5 alpha test':'', 'Annotations Service 0.1':'', 'XPointerLib 0.1.4':''});">install the necessary packages</a>.</li>
<li>Please then <b>restart your browser</b> and return to this page to continue
<li>Now go to the preferences window (Edit -&gt; Preferences -&gt;
		    Annozilla).  The Viewing Preferences will give you
		    two options for viewing annotations.  You may view
		    annotations in the Annozilla sidebar tab <b>AND/OR</b> view them as
		    icons inserted into your browser window.</li>
<li>Next, set up your Server Preferences.  You will need to have an account with an annotation server.
To try the W3C test server, get an account at <a
		      href=""></a> You may also download or install your own server. See <a href="">the Annotea page</a> for more information.</li>
