<h2>Installation</h2>
<h3>Overview</h3>

<p>The Annozilla software consists of three extensions:</p>
<ul>
    <li><b>xpointerlib</b> A library to allow the use of XPointers
    <li><b>the annotations service</b> A service allowing access to annotations
    <li><b>Annozilla</b> The Annozilla client itself
</ul>

<h3>Quick install</h3>
<p>For a quick installation, you can <button onclick="singleInstall()">install all three packages at once</button></p>
<p>For more details, read on.</p>

<h3>Details</h3>
<div class="mozilla">
<p><b>For Mozilla users:</b>
Both the annotations service and Annozilla can be installed in one of two ways:</p>
<ul>
    <li>into the "global chrome" area - this means that the extension will be available for all users of the browser. This requires the user to have write access to the brower installation, i.e. you may need to have Administrator rights on Windows, or to be root on Unix-based systems.
    <li>into the "personal chrome" area - this means that the extension will be available only to the user who installs the extension, but will be available across all versions of the browser, if multiple versions are installed.
</ul>
<p>If you have not already installed the extension, then you will be prompted
during installation and asked for your chosen destination.</p>
</div>

<div class="firefox">
<p><b>For Firefox 1.0+ users:</b>
The latest versions of the extension will install automatically into the "personal chrome" area. This means that, if you have different users on the same machine, they will all need to install Annozilla separately.</p>
<p>Firefox users gain all the benefits of the Firefox Extension Manager, including automatic updates to newer versions of the software.
</div>

<p>If you are running both the Mozilla suite and Mozilla Firefox, then you
will need to install all these extensions separately.</p>

<h3>Installing the Annozilla packages</h3>
<p>The latest versions of these components are as follows:</p>
<ul>
    <li><b>xpointerlib</b> version 0.2.4 - <a href="http://downloads.mozdev.org/xpointerlib/xpointerlib-0.2.4.xpi" onclick="return install(event, 'xpointerlib', 'sha256:ba18dd6dd642885d88cc1ecaded87702c9b1d5cccf23194608b6fa763c1f6b6d')">install the package</a>
    <li><b>annotations service</b> version 0.3.3 - <a href="http://downloads.mozdev.org/annozilla/annotations-0-3-3.xpi" onclick="return install(event, 'annotations', 'sha256:131e2a69ef6724d532568665c421667a56e04209bd1bbaa0a052d6f244ebe844')">install the package</a>

</ul>

    <p class=caption>Select Allow, then OK, to allow installation from this site.</p>
</div>

<p>You should see a screen like the one shown below. Please accept this by

<p>If the extension is already installed on your system, then the software will
automatically install the new version in the same location as the old one.</p>
</div>

<p>The usual legal disclaimers apply, I am not responsible for any damage
Annozilla might do to your machine, and stuff like that.</p>

<div class="firefox">
<p>Firefox users can get extra functionality by downloading the Spellbound extension (which provides spelling checking functionality) and an appropriate dictionary. See <a href="http://spellbound.sourceforge.net/">the Spellbound page</a> for details.</p>
