   39: Help documentation for Mozilla Calendar
   40: </h3>
   41: 
   42: <p>
   43: The Calendar Help project aims to provide help documentation
   44: for end users of Mozilla Calendar:
   45: <ul>
   46: <li>In all Calendar versions (the extensions for
   47: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/">Thunderbird</a>,
   48: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/">Firefox</a> and
   49: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/mozilla1.x/">Mozilla Application Suite</a>,
   50: and the standalone
   51: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/sunbird.html">Sunbird</a>
   52: )</li>
   53: <li>On all operating system platforms that Calendar and Sunbrd run on</li>
   54: <li>In English and all Calendar and Sunbird's other languages</li>
   55: </ul>
   56: </p>
   57: 
   58: <h4>How Calendar Help works</h4>
   59: <p>
   60: You normally install Calendar Help as an extension.
   61: It is also available online, but the
   62: <a href="open.xul">online version</a> is experimental and it has some limitations.
   63: </p>
   64: 
   65: <p>
   66: When you are using your Calendar application
   67: with the Calendar Help extension, there is a new item in the
   68: Help menu: Help Contents.
   69: This item opens a separate help window that contains the help,
   70: with a table of contents, index, search facility and glossary.
   71: </p>
   72: 
   73: <p>
   74: The F1 key (or Help key) opens the help if it is not already open,
   75: and switches to the topic that describes the element in the user interface
   76: that has keyboard focus.
   77: </p>
   78: 
   79: <p><strong>Note: </strong>
   80: In some versions of Calendar, F1 switches to the Day view.
   81: After you install Calendar Help, F5 switches to the Day view.
   82: </p>
   83: 
   84: <p>
   85: For a picture of the prototype, see the 
   86: <a href="screenshots.html">screenshots</a> page.
   87: </p>
   88: 
   89: <h4>Current status</h4>
   90: <p>
   91: The current version of Calendar Help documents most of the user interface
   92: in Sunbird and Calendar extensions.
   93: </p>
   94: 
   95: <p><b>Note: &nbsp;</b>
   96: There is no relationship between the version numbers of Calendar Help,
   97: Sunbird, and the Calendar extension.
   98: The projects are not synchronized.
   99: </p>
  100: 
  101: <p>
  102: To download and install Calendar Help, see the
  103: <a href="http://calendarhelp.mozdev.org/installation.html">Installation</a> page.
  104: </p>
  105: 
  106: <p>
  107: You can find other information about Calendar in Mozilla Calendar's
  108: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/faq.html">FAQ</a> and
  109: in its <a href="news://news.mozilla.org/netscape.public.mozilla.calendar">newsgroup</a>.
  110: </p>
  111: 
  112: 
  113: <h4>Calendar Help online</h4>
  114: <p>
  115: The <a href="open.xul">online version</a> of Calendar Help is experimental.
  116: It might be moved to a different web server, or withdrawn completely.
  117: </p>
  118: 
  119: <p>
  120: The online version is built from the same source text as the installable version.
  121: At times, the online version might contain more recent revisions than
  122: the installable version.
  123: </p>
  124: 
  125: <p>
  126: The online version has some limitations:
  127: </p>
  128: 
  129: <ul class="plain-list">
  130: <li>It only works in Mozilla browsers.</li>
  131: <li>It contains only the help for Windows versions, so Macintosh and Unix users might find it a little less easy to use..</li>
  132: <li>It combines the help for Sunbird and the help for Calendar extensions,
  133: so some topics are less easy to understand.</li>
  134: <li>It does not support the F1 key to go directly to a help topic related to a field in the user interface.</li>
  135: </ul>
  136: 
  137: 
  138: <h4>How you can help</h4>
  139: <p>
  140: This project needs reviewers and translators.
  141: </p>
  142: 
  143: <p>
  144: If you use Mozilla Calendar,
  145: and if you have a good understanding of how it works,
  146: then you can contribute to the project by reviewing one or more chapters.
  147: For more information, see the
  148: <a href="http://calendarhelp.mozdev.org/contribute.html">Join in</a> page.
  149: </p>
  150: 
  151: <p>
  152: If you use Mozilla Calendar in another language, and if you can translate the English
  153: help into your language, then you can contribute to the project by translating
  154: one or more chapters.
  155: For more information, see the
  156: <a href="http://calendarhelp.mozdev.org/contribute.html">Join in</a> page.
  157: </p>
  158: 
  159: <h4>Relationship to other projects</h4>
  160: <p>
  161: The Calendar Help project overlaps parts of 
  162: other proects, and it might conflict with them.
  163: But at this early stage, none of this is clear.
