1.9       whiteley   62: <p>
1.18      whiteley   63: You normally install Calendar Help as an extension.
                     64: It is also available online, but the
1.20      whiteley   65: <a href="open.xul">online version</a> is experimental and it has some limitations.
1.18      whiteley   66: </p>
                     67: 
                     68: <p>
                     69: When you are using your Calendar application
                     70: with the Calendar Help extension, there is a new item in the
1.24    ! whiteley   71: Help menu: Context Help.
1.9       whiteley   72: This item opens a separate help window that contains the help,
                     73: with a table of contents, index, search facility and glossary.
                     74: </p>
                     75: 
                     76: <p>
                     77: The F1 key (or Help key) opens the help if it is not already open,
                     78: and switches to the topic that describes the element in the user interface
                     79: that has keyboard focus.
                     80: </p>

1.24    ! whiteley   82: <p>
        !            83: If you are working with a dialog, a Help button at the bottom of the dialog window
        !            84: opens the help if it is not already open,
        !            85: and switches to the topic that describes the dialog.
