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