1.9       whiteley   67: <p>
1.18      whiteley   68: You normally install Calendar Help as an extension.
1.25      whiteley   69: It is also available <a href="open.xul">online</a>, but the
                     70: online version is experimental and it has some limitations.
1.18      whiteley   71: </p>
                     72: 
                     73: <p>
                     74: When you are using your Calendar application
                     75: with the Calendar Help extension, there is a new item in the
1.24      whiteley   76: Help menu: Context Help.
1.9       whiteley   77: This item opens a separate help window that contains the help,
                     78: with a table of contents, index, search facility and glossary.
                     79: </p>
                     80: 
                     81: <p>
                     82: The F1 key (or Help key) opens the help if it is not already open,
                     83: and switches to the topic that describes the element in the user interface
                     84: that has keyboard focus.
                     85: </p>
                     86: 
1.24      whiteley   87: <p>
                     88: If you are working with a dialog, a Help button at the bottom of the dialog window
                     89: opens the help if it is not already open,
                     90: and switches to the topic that describes the dialog.

                     93: <p>

                     95: <a href="screenshots.html">screenshots</a> page.
1.29      whiteley   96: Future versions will look a little different,
                     97: because of changes in the help viewer.

1.4       whiteley  101: <p>
1.29      whiteley  102: The current version 0.5.1 of Calendar Help documents most of the user interface

1.24      whiteley  104: It also contains information on customizing Calendar, on servers and on troubleshooting.

1.29      whiteley  107: <p>
                    108: A test version 0.6 of Calendar Help is available for nightly test builds of Sunbird 0.2+.
                    109: These builds are not all stable, so they are not recommended for general use.
                    110: Version 0.6 of Calendar Help does not completely document Sunbird 0.2+,
                    111: but it will gradually improve as the content is reviewed and updated.
                    112: </p>
