<h2>Installation</h2>
<ul class="spaced">
<li>Firstly <a href="javascript:triggerURL('http://downloads.mozdev.org/annozilla/annozilla-0-3-5.xpi');">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
installation.
<li>If this is the first time you have installed Annozilla, make sure your
sidebar is visible, and go to this URL:
<pre>chrome://annozilla/content/addpanel.xul</pre>
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:
<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>The "Server" preference should be set to the URL of the annotation server. (For example, the W3C test server is at http://annotest.w3.org/annotations.)
<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>.
</ul>
<li>You can also configure:
<ul>
<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
</ul>
<li>For languages, the options are these:
<ul>
<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).
</ul>
</ul>
