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