                     23: <h4>How Calendar Help works</h4>
                     24: <p>
                     25: You normally install Calendar Help as an extension.
                     26: It is also available <a href="open.xul">online</a>, but the
                     27: online version is experimental and it has some limitations.
                     28: </p>
                     29: 
                     30: <p>
                     31: When you are using your Calendar application
                     32: with the Calendar Help extension, there is a new item in the
                     33: Help menu: Context Help.
                     34: This item opens a separate help window that contains the help,
                     35: with a table of contents, index, search facility and glossary.
                     36: </p>
                     37: 
                     38: <p>
                     39: The F1 key (or Help key) opens the help if it is not already open,
                     40: and switches to the topic that describes the element in the user interface
                     41: that has keyboard focus.
                     42: </p>
                     43: 
                     44: <p>
                     45: If you are working with a dialog, a Help button at the bottom of the dialog window
                     46: opens the help if it is not already open,
                     47: and switches to the topic that describes the dialog.
                     48: </p>

                     52: <a href="screenshots.html">screenshots</a> page.
                     53: Future versions will look a little different,
                     54: because of changes in the help viewer.
                     55: </p>
