   45: Help documentation for Mozilla Calendar
   46: </h3>
   47: 
   48: <p>
   49: The Calendar Help project aims to provide help documentation
   50: for end users of Mozilla Calendar:
   51: <ul>
   52: <li>In all Calendar versions (the extensions for
   53: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/">Thunderbird</a>,
   54: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/">Firefox</a> and
   55: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/products/mozilla1.x/">Mozilla Application Suite</a>,
   56: and the standalone
   57: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/sunbird.html">Sunbird</a>
   58: )</li>
   59: <li>On all operating system platforms that Calendar and Sunbrd run on</li>
   60: <li>In English and all Calendar and Sunbird's other languages</li>
   61: </ul>
   62: </p>
   63: 
   64: <h4>How Calendar Help works</h4>
   65: <p>
   66: You normally install Calendar Help as an extension.
   67: It is also available <a href="open.xul">online</a>, but the
   68: online version is experimental and it has some limitations.
   69: </p>
   70: 
   71: <p>
   72: When you are using your Calendar application
   73: with the Calendar Help extension, there is a new item in the
   74: Help menu: Context Help.
   75: This item opens a separate help window that contains the help,
   76: with a table of contents, index, search facility and glossary.
   77: </p>
   78: 
   79: <p>
   80: The F1 key (or Help key) opens the help if it is not already open,
   81: and switches to the topic that describes the element in the user interface
   82: that has keyboard focus.
   83: </p>
   84: 
   85: <p>
   86: If you are working with a dialog, a Help button at the bottom of the dialog window
   87: opens the help if it is not already open,
   88: and switches to the topic that describes the dialog.
   89: </p>
   90: 
   91: <p>
   92: For a picture of the prototype, see the 
   93: <a href="screenshots.html">screenshots</a> page.
   94: </p>
   95: 
   96: <h4>Current status</h4>
   97: <p>
   98: The current version of Calendar Help documents most of the user interface
   99: in Sunbird and Calendar extensions.
  100: It also contains information on customizing Calendar, on servers and on troubleshooting.
  101: </p>
  102: 
  103: <p><b>Note: &nbsp;</b>
  104: There is no relationship between the version numbers of Calendar Help,
  105: Sunbird, and the Calendar extension.
  106: The projects are not synchronized.
  107: </p>
  108: 
  109: <p>
  110: To download and install Calendar Help, see the
  111: <a href="http://calendarhelp.mozdev.org/installation.html">Installation</a> page.
  112: </p>
  113: 
  114: <p>
  115: You can find other information about Calendar in Mozilla Calendar's
  116: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/faq.html">FAQ</a>,
  117: in its <a href="news://news.mozilla.org/netscape.public.mozilla.calendar">newsgroup</a>
  118: and in its <a href="http://wiki.mozilla.org/Calendar:Home_Page">wiki</a>.
  119: </p>
  120: 
  121: 
  122: <h4>Calendar Help online</h4>
  123: <p>
  124: The <a href="open.xul">online version</a> of Calendar Help is experimental.
  125: It might be moved to a different web server, or withdrawn completely.
  126: </p>
  127: 
  128: <p>
  129: The online version is built from the same source text as the installable version.
  130: At times, the online version might contain more recent revisions than
  131: the installable version.
  132: </p>
  133: 
  134: <p>
  135: The online version has some limitations:
  136: </p>
  137: 
  138: <ul class="plain-list">
  139: <li>It only works in Mozilla browsers.</li>
  140: <li>It contains only the help for Windows versions, so Macintosh and Unix users might find it a little less easy to use..</li>
  141: <li>It combines the help for Sunbird and the help for Calendar extensions,
  142: so some topics are less easy to understand.</li>
  143: <li>It does not support the F1 key to go directly to a help topic related to a field in the user interface.</li>
  144: </ul>
  145: 
  146: 
  147: <h4>How you can help</h4>
  148: <p>
  149: This project needs reviewers and translators.
  150: </p>
  151: 
  152: <p>
  153: If you use Mozilla Calendar,
  154: and if you have a good understanding of how it works,
  155: then you can contribute to the project by reviewing 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: <p>
  161: If you use Mozilla Calendar in another language, and if you can translate the English
  162: help into your language, then you can contribute to the project by translating
  163: one or more chapters.
  164: For more information, see the
  165: <a href="http://calendarhelp.mozdev.org/contribute.html">Join in</a> page.
  166: </p>
  167: 
  168: <h4>Relationship to other projects</h4>
  169: <p>
  170: The Calendar Help project overlaps parts of 
  171: other proects, and it might conflict with them.
  172: But at this early stage, none of this is clear.
