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